    Very probably this is due to broken way how X themselves implement
    auto-repeat, instead of using kernel-provided auto-repeat functionality. I
    guess you are not able to reproduce this problem in the console, but only
    X, right?

    AFAIK it's a problem with X being confused by scheduler behavior (which is
    not necessarily wrong).
