>From the docs:

  Don't communicate directly with the window system, disregarding the
  DISPLAY environment variable even if it is set. This means that Emacs
  uses the terminal from which it was launched for all its display and
  input.

The terminal gets and sends X Events.

Emacs gets and sends _characters_ to and  from the terminal.

Sometimes Emacs may get signals from the terminal,
like when the terminal is resized.

Emacs in a terminal does not see X Events.

So, your issue is what does the terminal send to Emacs
when you hit a KP key,

Terminals like rxvt and xterm give you complete control.

gnome-terminal, sorry, I don't use it.
