Fix key repeat problem

I have had trouble with keys getting "stuck" and autorepeating until some  
key press. I believe the problem is related to clients grabbing the  
keyboard for some(?) time. The attached patch seems to cure this.

I have only seen the problem in xserver 1.6, not 1.5 or master.

where the patch was ack'ed by Peter Hutterer. Unfortunately the patch seems to be empty in the mail archive.
