xset says key repeat is on:

Keyboard Control:
  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.
