your keyboard rate altered no problem:

-ar1 milliseconds
             Specify amount of  time  in  milliseconds  before  a
             pressed key begins to autorepeating.  The default is
             500 milliseconds.  This option is not  available  on
             Solaris x86 or PowerPC.
 
     -ar2 milliseconds
             specify  the  interval   in   milliseconds   between
