I was using xterm. I tried, for example, vt102 and that fixed the "5"

so I'm no better off than before.

When you press in Terminal a function or cursor or numerical keypad key, then these keys produce ANSI Esc sequences (you can record them, for example in *scratch* buffer, with: C-q <key press>). These codes are quite characteristic for each terminal (or its emulation). So it should help when Terminal and the remote shell have the same TERM value set and since Terminal is quite inflexible make the remote site follow Terminal (I am using xterm-color).

Did you make a test with this set-up? It might also help to launch GNU Emacs with -Q that no customisation disturbs. Does it make a difference with and without -Q?
