I've experienced that too and thought it's due to my configuration.
I tried to passthrough the whole USB controller but to no avail.
USB mouse works choppy, but otherwise fine for me though.
I tried with a dell USB keyboard, on Jeremy's 2.6.32 and 2.6.31 kernels, same effect.

Obviously I used qemu usb passthrough, not pvusb.

I saw this problem referenced in some posts in early May.  I'm
wondering if anyone has a solution.

I have a Gentoo amd64 distro running on an Intel box.  I did a
base Gentoo install of 2.6.32-r7 which works fine.  The Xen dom0
kernel I got to work with that install is what they call 2.6.32-r1.
All works fine except that I get this really annoying key repeat.
It's not all keys and it's not all the time, but when it happens
I may get 10 letters spewed out instead of one.  kbdrate has no
effect.  Sometimes it seems to help for a half minute or so but I
think it's really having no effect.

I have a USB keyboard.  I also see this during early boot: I have
a LUKS encrypted partition and when initramfs prompts for that
password, I get the repeat there as well (so much so that I've
had to increase my retries so I can fail 10-20 times).

Any ideas?
