When entering numbers, and the number input box is not properly focused, FreeCAD will react to digits by switching standard views. This macro is a quick way to re-bind the shortcuts to Ctrl+number. Doesn't help very much with entering numbers, but at least the view won't spin like crazy.

See forum thread How to turn off (disable) Numpad navigation?
