its a qt(nokia) problem:

I would keep this issue opened and to be checked when Qt has a fix for it. If you are reading this and have an account on the Qt bug tracker, please vote for the bug ;)

or rather: vote against it ;-)


A bug (now marked duplicate) has some details: #11577: [Mac] Font for directional keys broken when entered

The number may not appear, but does that prevent the shortcut from functioning?

updating URL:
If I read it correctly, it's fixed in Qt 5.2 (when that gets released)

Also see #11966: Can't use numpad asterisk in keyboard shortcuts.
