Hrm - it's working for me with the setup you describe..

I remember a while ago, something weird happened, and when running WMX, X
would only accept input when numlock was on.  It only happend twice and then
went away, so I thought no more about it.  Perhaps this is the same problem?

Could you post what your options link points to?
