Apply the patch at
(only the third hunk is useful) then rebuild your kernel.
I hope this fix will be in NetBSD 2.1.

For some reason, setting the delay to any value other than 660 works, so run
"xset r rate 661 25". Alternatively, you can add a -ar1 option in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers. Mine says:
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/XsunMono -nolisten tcp -ar1 500
No-one seems to know why this is happening, but I've submitted a PR:
