I have a strange problem with Centos 4 (all kernels so far). When i am 
running gnome (havent tried KDE) and i go into a browser or even just a 
console window and type something a letter repeates it self 10-20 times 
(likeeeeee thhhhhhissssss). I can turn this of the the keyboard settings 
(repeating keys) but then i cant hold down backspace and so on ....I 
think this is some kind of software error but cant really figure it out :|

My hardware is:
Nvidia NFORCE4 chipset
AMD X2 4200+
2Gb Memory
SATA harddrive

SMP kernel (all of the Centos kernels seem to have this problem...havent 
tried the uni processor onces tho)

I've also ran Fedora Core 4 & Fedora Core 5 on this box and have no 
problems there.

Anyone knows a solution for this (except for turning off Repat Keys).
