The problem I had with keyb autorepeat in pre -25
xserv reoccured.
This was not long ago, but sorry for I can't say
exactly at which version.
I use XWin with -kb option and keyboard autorepeat
doesn't work anymore in X apps (whether I use or not
XF86Config file - which, I just realized, is no longer
In my XWin.log, I found 
(--) Setting autorepeat to delay=500, rate=31
(--) winConfigKeyboard - Layout: "0000040C" (0000040c)

(--) Using preset keyboard for "French (Standard)"
(40c), type "4"
Rules = "xfree86" Model = "pc105" Layout = "fr"
Variant = "(null)" Options = "(null)"
winKeybdProc - Error initializing keyboard AutoRepeat
(No XKB)

Is the support for autorepeat without XKB loaded
removed or is this a bug ?

The possibly relevant changes I found are

# version -41:
8) General - Protect some more XKB stuff with #ifdef
XKB.  Needed for the build in the xserver tree on
fd.o.  (Harold L Hunt II)

... maybe it has been "too much" protected ?

# version -51
2) InitOutput.c - Print a log message that XF86Config
is unsupported with pointer to documentation (FAQ). 
(Alexander Gottwald)

... but I didn't use XF86Config: maybe a side effect ?

Thanks for your help,
