Nope. And shift/ctl/alt do not work to stop the autorepeat once it's

Hmmmm. Maybe. I don't use it so I can try disabling it.

No. But today it's not happening! I wish I knew why. No updates have
been applied. The computer has been suspended a couple of times. I will
be very interested to see if the issue returns.
