I am trying to set my keyboard autorepeat delay to 200 milliseconds,
and the repeat rate to 30 characters per second.  This doesn't work from my
XF86Config file, but I can successfully set it using "xset r rate".

The strange part is that the settings I find are 660 and 25.
From reading the Xfree source, I would expect to find 660 and 40.
Can anyone give me a clue why my XF86Config file isn't working?



The section in /etc/X11/XF86Config:

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier	"Keyboard1"
    Driver	"Keyboard"
    Option	"AutoRepeat"	"200 30"
    Option	"XkbRules"	"xfree86"
    Option	"XkbModel"	"pc101"
    Option	"XkbLayout"	"us"

"xset q" shows:

Keyboard Control:
  auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
  auto repeat delay:  660    repeat rate:  25
