This report actually describes 2 problems; however the first I can
provide almost no information except for.
1) sporadic keyboard hangs under XFree
I've now experienced for 3 times that after arbitrary time while using
X11 the keyboard hang. Mouse events and everything else kept working,
un- and replugging the keyboard or restarting the X server put the
keyboard back into operation. I'm using the wscons console driver
(exact configuration see below). Getty isn't waiting on the virtual
tty I run X on.
2) autorepeat rate setting ignored
When I set the autorepeat rate with xset, it doesn't affect X at all.
There's no "unsupported" error either. I have also tried to remedy
that by changing the values in the wscons driver to what I prefer
with the result that I have the desired rate on the virtual ttys now
but not in X.
For example, "xset r rate 250 30" does not affect X. Neither do any
other values I provide to xset r rate. Enabling/disabling autorepeat
Also, a line "AutoRepeat 250 30" in /etc/XF86Config has no effect either.
This is the complete "Keyboard" section from /etc/XF86Config:
AutoRepeat 250 30
The X11 console is the fifth virtual tty:
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X vt05
Try to change autorepeat rate under XFree with a configuration similar
None known to me.
