Your problems could be timer issues: timers going off too fast cause
high keyboard repeat rates, and the same goes for the screensaver. Does
'sleep 1' work as expected, or is that timing out in an "accelerated"
way too?

I usually recommend doing a 'sleep 10'. It really shows you if things are
wrong. If a sleep 1 returns 2 seconds, or 0.5 seconds later it may not be
detected. But a sleep 10 returning 20 seconds or 5 seconds later is

Or maybe:
'time sleep 10'

Lets the machine time it.
