Not that this truly addresses the problem you are having, but one 
workaround is to use the number keys. If you press some number of 
digits, followed by whatever button you use to commercial skip 
forward (IIRC), it will jump forward that number of minutes. I use 
this all the time, since it's far easier than holding a button down 
for 30 seconds.
