It seems to me that the lack of the slashes on the 0 key must be due  
to a bug or a problem reading the KP_0 line of the file.

In order to overcome this it might be worth:
- slashing-out the + in the .conf file
- changing the order of the characters (putting the + at the end?)
- removing the backslash

I'll maybe try this once I have networking up.
