Another interesting point:
In the non-repeating state, xset q says:
Keyboard Control:
  auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
  auto repeat delay:  660    repeat rate:  25
  auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf

If I change the auto repeat delay ("xset r rate") to something
else than 660, it starts repeating, but when I change it back
to 660, it stops repeating again. E.g. all of 25 (don't try that
at home), 659, 661, 600, and 330 work, but 660 does not.

What's so special about 660?

George, do you see the same behaviour?
