Bug#407189: libxkbfile1: does not change key autorepeat state
When doing something like
xkbcomp $DISPLAY /tmp/xkb
<edit /tmp/xkb to change key autorepeat state>
xkbcomp /tmp/xkb $DISPLAY
to change some keys' autorepeat state as viewed by the X server, the
autorepeat states are silently unchanged.
I believe that this is because the code which would be responsible for
changing the state is commented out:
in XkbWriteToServer in srvmisc.c.
My IBM X40 Thinkpad has two keys which I would like to turn into Hyper
and Super modifiers; however, their default state is to autorepeat, and
I can't turn this off using xkbcomp. (Using xset -r <keycode> works,
however, as does generating an XkbSetControls request manually).
I'd be happy to provide more information or provide sample files if that
