      Bug Description:
      Robot is generating multiple key events against single keystroke on Redhat Linux
      (Note this appears to be the same bug as 4817479 - however that was closed as
      fixed in 1.5, yet we are still seeing this problem in 1.6)

      Also we can not get all of our clients to go through and change the auto repeat delay.

      Expected: when the Text Area has focus the word 'testing' should repeatedly be written into it
      Actual: when the Text Area has focus garbage such as 'tttttttttttttteeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssttttttttttttttiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg' is written into it
      Test case has no delay in between.
      Obviously if there was a 500 ms delay and the auto repeat was 200 ms then multiple ts should be typed.
      With no delay (as in test case) then only a single t should be typed.
