The numeric mode is dead. The cursor mode is also partly dead. Home, 
PgUp, PgDn, End, Insert and Delete work but ArrowUp, ArrowDown, 
ArrowLeft and ArrowRight don't work either. Enter works in both modes.

And funnily enough, in the numeric mode, if I press any key (except for 
Enter) and there is a completion possible at the place where the cursor 
is, the completion dialog is shown.
