evdev: held down keys not being repeated

The help under Kxkb states:

"Kxkb configuration does not change anything in XFree86 configuration files 
and Layout settings from XFree86 configuration are overridden by Kxkb if 
Enable keyboard layout option is turned on.

To make your XFree86 configuration work you have to turn off both Enable 
keyboard layout in layout configuration tab and Enable xkb options in Xkb 
options configuration tab (for the latter the same effect can be reached if 
Reset Old Options is turned off and none of xkb options are set)."

I've done both of these things and it doesn't make any difference. 

Are there any KDE people here who can enlighten me?
