Keyboard Repeat Rate - FreeBSD

After I start X, I need to switch to a virtual console and log in as root so that I can issue kbdcontrol -r fast. Is there a place I can set this so I don't have to do that anymore? I've looked at the man pages for a few settings, but I can't seem to find something that specifically addresses keyboard repeat rate. Thanks in advance....

    Default Keyboard Repeat Rate

    After I start X, I need to switch to a virtual console and log in as
    root so that I can issue kbdcontrol -r fast.

    Is there a place I can set this so I don't have to do that anymore? I've
    looked at the man pages for a few settings, but I can't seem to find
    something that specifically addresses keyboard repeat rate.

    Thanks in advance.

    curious markings: 

    Do you mean that you have your system set to load X immediately upon
    booting, and that you do not set the keyboard repeat rate before then?
    If so, put the following in /etc/rc.conf:
    keyrate="fast"

    And all should be well. Also note that you do not need to be root to
    issue that command. I need to do this command a lot when I reboot a
    machine on my KVM, because it registers as a keyboard disconnect which
    fouls up the keyboard settings, and having to su root each time would be
    rather annoying.

    No, I boot into terminal mode and then log in and then issue startx.
    What happens for me currently is that I start up x and they key repeat
    rate is too slow. Even if I issue kbdcontrol -r fast before starting x.
     

    Okay. I'll try that.

    Well, that didn't work.

    It sets the key repeat rate, but when I start X it goes back to
    defaults. At least for the X session.

    I'm guessing there's a configuration somewhere for WindowMaker that is
    re-setting it. :c(

    Hmmm. I'll have to poke around some more .....

    Perhaps Option "AutoRepeat" can be of help. See kbd(4x) or keyboard(4x) manual
    for description.
