	My A3k has the same problem.  Best way to cause it is accessing a DAT.
If I remember correctly, the exessive keyboard repeat and buffering affects
console logins as well as xterm sessions.  I don't experience this behavior 
under AmigaOS at all.  I'm really not sure if it's the keyboard driver or 
old SBIC driver.  Anyone experience this with the new driver?

My system:
	A3000/25 2C 8F
	Rev. 8 WD-SCSI
	Quantum LP105S ID0
	Quantum EMP1080S ID1
	NetBSD 1.0

	I'm crossposting this to since it doesn't seem limited
to X.
