The xset man page states that using 'xset -r <keycode> will turn off 
autorepeat for that key. This does not work on 6.0-7.0.

I can't seem to reproduce this.  Can you give me an exact command that
does not work so I can reproduce your exact problem?  Either that or it is
working in the latest release...

xset -r ????

xset works perfectly fine for me.

xset -r
xset r
xser -r keycode
xset r keycode

Where keycode is the integer keycode between 1 and 255.
The "1" key is code 10 for example.

xset -r 10     (disable repeat for "1" key)
xset r 10      (enable     "    "   "   " )
