Thanks, fixed in SVN.

I can't reproduce that on my MBP, but that has a UK layout where ^ is

That said, when running in XP/Bootcamp, I have seen exactly the same
problem from the key directly below escape (which - assuming it makes it
through the mail server - is §). I ran into it when I wrote a keyboard
map because I wasn't happy with the bootcamp one, so I suspect this is
Mac-wierdness that needs to be fixed in wxWidgets. I've CC'd Stefan in
the hopes that he'll be able to comment.

Yes, this one is a known issue - from the bugs list:

[STC] The numeric keypad doesn't work with the styled text control under
      wxWidgets bug ref: 1776244

Thanks, Dave.
