That circle would indicate that the numeric key pad modifier is down
-- the Mac keyboard has no such thing, but sends the modifier with
(some) of the numeric key pad keys (and the movement keys), and I try
to circle these.
Is there a toggle on your USB keyboard? if so, the problem is likely
just then, that the toggle is pressed.
Actually I do handle this better in recent builds , by ignoring
the modifier when the pressed key has it, but not when the required
key has it. I.e. setting an action to num pad 1 will only work for
the num pad 1 key, but setting it to 1 will work with both the 1 key
and the num pad 1 key.
If you do have the toggle on yuor keyboard, I'd like to know if it
does work better for recent builds (which you can downlaod w/o
needing to do anything fancy besides replacing TextMate.app).
