numlock handling has changed in slim since version 1.3.4.
They included the code fom NumLockX in slim, using the xkb calls.

On my netbook it works fine, but it has a non-standard keyboard.
On my other systems I don't use any login manager at all, so I cannot
really check it.

If this continues to be a problem for you, you might want to contact the
slim author(s), the are usually helpful and responsive.
If nothing else works out, I might try this out on a desktop, but I'm with
very limited spare time nowadays, so it may take a while...
