Making xset stick on a secondary X session

I am running a second X server (:1) and then run the vnc client (tigervnc)
over it in -fullscreen. I am having huge problems increasing the keyboard
repeat rate and reducing the keyboard delay for that X server.
To see what I mean, simply run another X server:
sudo X :1 &
The blank, empty X server will be there
Then go back to the "main" xserver, and run:
At this point, the repeat is average and the delay is long--ish (the
default). Now run within that xterm:
xset r rate 150 50
The keyboard repeat rate and delay are adjusted. Great! CTRL-D and exit
that term. Go back to the "main" X session, and type again:
The new repeat/delay settings are gone (?!?!?!), keyboard is slow/delay is
Running xset r rate 150 50 from the "main" X server. even with DISPLAY=:1,
still won't change the keyboard rate for the second :1 server.
This is a bugger, since I need to decide the repeat rate and the delay for
that second X server ':1', since I will run the xvnc client in -fullscreen
mode -- and I can't find a way of setting that X server :1 so that the
repeat/delay are what I need them to be.
