xset says key repeat is on:
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000
auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffffffff3f
bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
According to the xset man page the auto repeat delay is in milliseconds, but just for kicks I held a key down for over a minute to make sure the xserver wasn't interpreting it as 1/10 sec. Still no repeat.
I haven't found any documentation that sufficiently explains how to read the auto repeating keys section, but I have tried quite a few different keys from the main alpha-numeric keys to the function keys, to the numeric keypad and arrow keys, but never get any repeat, so I doubt that has anything to do with it.
