There is a difference between -q and -Q! Check with 'emacs --help'!

You are not restricted to an old vt102 emulation in Terminal. It should not take longer than half an hour to test the six or seven other variants (xterm/xterm-color and dtterm [from CDE] look most promising, ansi might be restricted 'though exact). There is always the chance that a terminal's capabilities description is faulty, local or remote. Or both.

Anyway, I'd prefer the X client GNU Emacs, which has no problems. To find out whether the remote GNU Emacs without windows makes problems you can check what the remote login shell sees. Does it see different keys than Emacs? Are there any ~/.inputrc files on the remote site that can alter the default key bindings of that login shell? With the tee programme you can save a copy of your local input to a file while GNU Emacs is running. When that file is a FIFO you can see in another Terminal with another ssh session with tail what this FIFO just received from tee, i.e. you. So you'll see in parallel what Emacs sees and what the login shell sees.

The situation can be made more complicated by watching too the network connection and dumping what is actually sent to the remote site.

Or for short: I haven't found yet such a misbehaviour. Because I was always using xterm/xterm-color and never the numeric keypad?
