Bug#181423: Info received (Bug#181423: xserver-xfree86: [core server] should not change keyboard repeat settings on non-X VCs)
Checking the behavior on the second Debian box shows that:
1. The keyboard rate is reset to the Debian default every time I bring
up X. Then to get the VC keyboard rate I want, I have to run the kbdrate
command again (as root).
2. If I reset the rate after bringing up X, the rate stays where I set
it, even when I log in on a new VC.
Apparently, there's something in the startup of X that resets the keyboard
delay and rate. Please keep this bug alive.
