What really happens is this:  ir-keyboard.c has its own b0rked "repeat" logic,
which does not actually work properly, and which interacts rather poorly
with the generalized repeat logic in the input layer.

The result is a total mess, and drives people crazy (to LIRC, nonetheless).
But that's something for the kernel mailing lists, not here.  Sorry.  :)
