I'm 95% certain that the reason is that the LK201/401 lets you set key
repeating by programming a certain hardware register in the keyboard.
Last time I looked at this, it was hard coded to not have that key repeat.
As far as fixing it, I'd like it too, but unfortunately I have too much
other stuff to do.  

If you want to try and mess with programming, get the sources for the X
server and take a look at:

Somewhere (I really have no idea where now) in the X server code, LK_DOWN
gets set for the group which has the arrow keys.

Hope this helps a little..
