      Comment #12 on issue 115 by Go.Zu...@...: Vim Macro to generate ASCII
      characters
      http://code.google.com/p/vim/issues/detail?id=115

      I verified, I don't have any vimrc:
      $HOME/_vimrc
      $HOME/.vimrc
      $VIM/_vimrc
      $VIM/vimrc
      At the start of vim with vim -N -u NONE -i NONE, I see nothing , and after
      starting the issue is reproduceable.
      But I find the problem: The issue is reproduce able all time, also with the
      vim 7.3.842 when I used numeric keypad (on the right) to input 32 value.
      When I use the numeric keys above the letters, the macros works.
      Thanks a lot for helping !
      Best regards !

        I finally reproduced the issue, using the keypad like you discovered; so
        although you still didn't explain, it's probably not important at this
        point what you didn't see.

        I certainly would not expect this behavior, but I actually think I know the
        cause. I suspect it's because Vim actually distinguishes between 1 and
        <k1>, 2 and <k2>, etc. keys to allow mapping them differently. So the macro
        contains special escape sequences for the keypad keys which aren't present
        when using normal numerics.

        To demonstrate the difference, try the following:

        qao<k1><k2><k3><Esc>q
        qbo123<Esc>q

        Both these macros do the same thing when executed. Both will make a new
        line with text, 123. But now examine the register contents:

        :reg a
        :reg b

        For me at least, on Windows gvim, they are drastically different!

        Not all systems actually send Vim a different sequence for the keypad keys;
        on these systems, 1 and <k1> are not separately mappable.

        I think this will only pop up when somebody tries using a recorded macro
        both as a recording and as text for insertion and manipulation. I'm not
        sure whether it's possible to fix without breaking the separate mapping
        capability of the keypad, or even if there is something to fix at all.

        A person who wrote the macro in the first place would know what they were
        trying to accomplish at each step in the macro. When they pasted the
        contents of the unnamed register, hoping to get a numeric value which could
        then be incremented, if they saw the special escape sequences, they would
        immediately know something was wrong. I don't actually think there is
        anything to fix here, unless it's just seen as another place Vim's internal
        representation of special keys causes weird behavior.

          Well, this would cause typing "q" to end recording to set the register
          used for the next put command. I don't think that is right. When
          yanking and pasting you normally do this with text, not with commands
          recorded to a buffer. It may cause a problem.

          Recording to the " buffer is a problem anyway, since it depends on what
          buffer this turns out to be. Better not use q" unless you know what
          register " refers to.

              In note #12 the problem was identified as something to do with the numeric
              keypad.
              Thus the issue is solved.
