I would never have guessed! Sure enough 650 and 670 work, 660 doesn't.

.. and I have the same problem with xsrc (compiled with make World, so
doesn't pick up XKB_ALWAYS_USES_SOFT_REPEAT as compiling on i386, and
not using x11/Xserver/xkb/Makefile)
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000
auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf
options WSKBD_EVENT_AUTOREPEAT # auto repeat in event mode
Driver "kbd" (or "Keyboard" same problem)
Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
