        As far as I know, you can get a similar behaviour in xterm if you
disable the option 'Alt/NumLock Modifiers'. Vim puts the terminal in raw
mode and enables the keypad application mode, because it needs the keycode
and not the ansi code for the others special keys. But this mode causes a
problem with the numerical and arithmetic keys, because there isn't any
terminfo entry for them (there are terminfo entry for the diagonals in
cursor mode, that are used when LockNum is disabled). Xterm solves the
problem ignoring the keypad application mode for numerical keys when
'Alt/NumLock Modifiers' is enabled (by default), and ignore it always for
arithmetical keys.

          Maybe the best option is putting some parameter in st and select
the behaviour when you start it.
