Bug#694056: Pressing the numlock key makes HDD LED blink shortly

Package: gnome
Version: 1:3.4+6
Severity: normal

How to reproduce:

If your Numlock led is lighted:
1. Press the Numlock key.
2. Release the Numlock key, observing that the HDD LED flashes (on and off) shortly, for less than 1/3 s.

If your Numlock key is not lighted:
1. Press the Numlock key, observing that the HDD LED flashes (on and off) shortly, for less than 1/3 s.
2. Release the Numlock key.

The used computer is Dell Precision M 6700.

I expect that such an innocent action as switching the Numlock state should not incur unnecessary disk activity or, even worse, HDD LED blinking without such an activity.
