Ubuntu Lucid - repeating keys

My repeating keys just turned off on its own today, and I needed to turn it off and then back on again to fix the issue:

System->Preferences->Keyboard->Uncheck 'Key presses repeat when key is held down'->Close

Then:
System->Preferences->Keyboard->Check 'Key presses repeat when key is held down'->Close

This problem effected gnome-terminal, and any new tab or window. The fix was to log out and log back in. (In effect, restarting X).
