strange EDT keypad behavior

I've been running EDT emulation on emacs 20.7 for some time, and it works great.

We recently upgraded a machine to emacs 21.2, and I've noticed something strange.

on 20.7, in EDT emulation:
 ESC 2 0 KP0 causes the cursor to drop 20 lines, as expected.

on 21.2, in EDT emulation:
ESC 2 0 KP0 results in a minibuffer display "ESC 2 0 kp-0-" and emacs does nothing, apparently waiting for more keystrokes.

Note that ESC 2 0 KP, and ESC 2 0 KP- work fine on both versions of emacs.
ESC n <down>, ESC n e, etc. all work fine as well. Seems to be KP0 - KP9 that don't play well with ESC n.

A workaround is ESC n C-u KP0, but that is a definite step backwards.

I dug through the edt.el but couldn't spot why this is happening. A web search produced nothing useful.

Is there a way to revert this behavior back to that of 20.7?
