I'm sorry; I didn't finish answering your question. Here's the keyboard
section from my XF86Config file:
AutoRepeat 500 5
# XkbTypes "default"
# XkbCompat "default"
# XkbSymbols "us(pc101)"
# XkbGeometry "pc"
# XkbRules "xfree86"
IIRC, originally there weren't any comments in here, but I looked at
another XF86Config file that didn't have those entries, so I commented
them out hoping that'd make a difference. It didn't.
