My A3k has the same problem. Best way to cause it is accessing a DAT.
If I remember correctly, the exessive keyboard repeat and buffering affects
console logins as well as xterm sessions. I don't experience this behavior
under AmigaOS at all. I'm really not sure if it's the keyboard driver or
old SBIC driver. Anyone experience this with the new driver?
