Default Centos 6 - tigervnc - numbers on keypad

I have a ncurses-based program that runs on a vnc desktop on a remote
computer. On Centos 5 you could enter numbers into the program using the
numeric keypad. I just installed a new machine running Centos 6 to do this

of the keyboard. The program still recognizes the keys on the keypad when
numlock is not set (so you get home, pgup, left and right cursor, etc.) but I
get nothing when I set the numlock key.

Having said that, I do see activity when I set numlock and run the xev program,
so the keypresses are obviously getting through.

How can I make this thing accept numbers from the numeric keypad on Centos 6?
Do I have to re-write the ncurses program to recognize some different
