I said:

.. But actually it does work, i.e.  X clients on that display no longer
receive key repeats after an xset -r is issued on any session whose
DISPLAY is the X server that I am looking at here. The PuTTy terminal
window is not a X client so it's keyboard events are coming from
somewhere else. 

It seems to work for PD runnign on the Linux machine while I am logged
in, in this way (looking at the behaviour of the right-click 'help' from
the 'key' object found in lib/pd/doc/5.reference) and also
'keybin-help.pd' posted to the list. It's a property of the 'display',
not the machine or the shell session, however. 

I think you could not easily have another program running in which key
repeates ARE active; unless it's on another display; also if the program
bypasses the X and gets its keystrokes from the kernel directly,
probably it would not work as expected.
