Auto-repeat with evdev 2.2.0

Dropping evdev 2.2.0 onto a system that was running 2.1.3 caused auto-repeat to stop working.
The keyboard is a run of the mill keyboard connected via a PS/2 connector.  HAL is not installed.

Restoring 2.1.3 restored auto-repeat.  xset q reported the same auto-repeat settings under both drivers.

Anyone else experience this?  Regression or something changed in what configuration is needed?
If it might be a configuration problem, what should I be looking at?
