It is set to fast in rc.conf but it is slow in X. Anyway to speed it up? If you want to backspace a whole line, you can rest a hammer on the key and go get coffee.

Check out man xset ...
r The r option controls the autorepeat. If a preceding dash or
the 'off' flag is used, autorepeat will be disabled. If no
parameters or the 'on' flag is used, autorepeat will be
enabled. If a specific keycode is specified as a parameter,
autorepeat for that keycode is enabled or disabled. If the
server supports the XFree86-Misc extension, or the XKB exten-
sion, then a parameter of 'rate' is accepted and should be fol-
lowed by zero, one or two numeric values. The first specifies
the delay before autorepeat starts and the second specifies the
repeat rate. In the case that the server supports the XKB
extension, the delay is the number of milliseconds before
autorepeat starts, and the rate is the number of repeats per
second. If the rate or delay is not given, it will be set to
the default value.

That helped speed it up a little bit, not as much as I would like though.

xset -r 19

I think if you specify -r you disable autorepeat. You need to spec something like

xset r rate 500 30

If it doesn't accept that then you can only do this:

xset on

(The options you specified disables autorepeat for keycode 19. :-)

bash-2.05b$ xset r rate 100 40 works nicely I am thiking 100 10 seems to work better at the moment. I'll have to play with it and see what works best.
