I had the exact same problem - very annoying when it happened when
increasing the volume ! :-)   And indeed, turning off auto-repeat does the
trick.  I just added "xset r off" to my .xinitrc and that solved the problem

As far as remotes go, I learned my keyboard keystroke on a Sony RM-VL600 and
it's quite nice - all the buttons I need, and it's relatively inexpensive -
around $40 canadian.  Good simple combination without  futzing with a serial
lirc receiver.  Highly recommended.
