libxkbfile1: does not change key autorepeat state
Submitted by David Martínez Moreno

I am acting as an intermediate for Christophe. He has filed a bug in the Debian BTS, that follows:
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: #ifdef NOTYET ... #endif 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
however, as does generating an XkbSetControls request manually).
I'd be happy to provide more information or provide sample files if that would help.
