No Key Repeat in X

Hey all,

	A few days ago I did a fresh install of Debian stable (still Woody I believe) via the Internet.  The machine is a Macintosh Quadra 840AV w/ 128M RAM, ~230M drive for MacOS, 4G drive for Linux.  The install went smoothly -- of course I had to consult the archives of this list to re-learn how to get the keyboard mappings correct, but that's sorted out.
	The problem I'm having now is that I have no key repeat in X.  It works fine in the console.  I can hold down a key and fill the screen with identical characters, then hold the backspace (marked delete) key and wipe them all out.  Doesn't work in X.  No keys repeat.  One other keyboard glitch that might shed some light is that I have to press "Caps Lock" three times to get it to return to lowercase.  The first press apparently does nothing.  With the second press, the "Caps Lock" LED goes off, and with the third it finally turns off caps lock.  
	I've scoured the archives for several days now but couldn't find this exact problem.  I'm sure I've missed it somewhere, but I can't figure out where.  Any ideas?  This is stock Debian stable.  Since I have repeat in the console I don't suspect a kernel problem.
	I had Potato installed on a different Q840AV, but I don't remember this problem.  Is this peculiar to xfree86 4?  I've included my /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for your learned scrutiny.

p.s.  I know -- I need to remove the DEBCONF stuff because I've been editing this thing manually.  Pretend you didn't see that.

# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 server configuration file) generated by dexconf, the
# Debian X Configuration tool, using values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
# If you want your changes to this file preserved by dexconf, only make changes
# before the "### BEGIN DEBCONF SECTION" line above, and/or after the
# "### END DEBCONF SECTION" line below.
# To change things within the debconf section, run the command:
#   dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
# as root.  Also see "How do I add custom sections to a dexconf-generated
# XF86Config or XF86Config-4 file?" in /usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/FAQ.gz.
