Though I am still unable to get
xset r rate N M  (where N=delay, M=rate)
to work, I decided to look at the defaults.

Do these default values look reasonable?

$ xset q
Keyboard Control:
   auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
   auto repeat delay:  985    repeat rate:  111
   auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf

I never set the value of the autorepeating keys.
How are they being set like this by default?

As you can see the delay is almost a full second,
but in practice, it is more like 1.20 seconds.

If on your fedora xset r rate N M
works without giving you the error message,
could you please share your xorg.conf and the
version of these packages:
