AH!

Dear Jonas, my problem is now not a problem: with your help I make
this for good!

The good method is, was you wrote me:

in /Programs/KDE-Base/Current/Shared/config/kdm/Xsetup written the
'numlockx on'. So in the login process is already the numlock in 'on'
phase!

Big thanks for you, and for all helper people!

Zoli
