I'm running SlickEdit with Brief emulation remotely from a MobaXterm window with my xwindows client running on a Windows machine.  When I highlight a line and press keypad plus, the line is replaced with '+' instead of copying that line to the buffer. If I open a terminal session on the Linux machine and launch VS, the keypad + key works as it should, which is to say it copies the highlighted line to the buffer.  Is there a workaround to get this working in the remote session?

 I use MobaXterm. This is a problem with MobXterm. I hadn't noticed this because i don't use those keys. Non of the key pad keys work (Ins, Del, Left, Right, Up, Down etc.). There's a web page talking about it here

I ran xev to see what X events were being sent to SlickEdit and the wrong keys are being returned to SlickEdit.

Has anyone figured out a work around for this?
