Please have a look at routine kbd_response() in pcvt_kbd.c. This is the
location at which Gateway 2000 support was done - perhaps you want to try
to increase the delay values.

I have no idea how to proceed with this, i have a couple of keyboards of
different brands and behaviours, but no Gateway keyboard so i cannot
reproduce this 'special' behaviour here.

The only solution i see is either someone sends me a Gateway keyboard which
shows this symptoms or an owner of such a beast invests some time finding
the real cause of the problem and fixing it.
