I beg to differ.  A few hours ago I put a score book up on my laptop
(because my music stand is missing in action).  Half an hour later, I
found that it had pressed a key with auto repeat, with the cursor in
Firefox' location bar.  Now 15 characters per second for half an hour
without a newline is not "real typing speed".  Nevertheless, it was
completely annoying that Firefox was thrashing so hopelessly that after
a few minutes of trying to erase that long line in the location bar (C-a
DEL should have done the trick) I had to kill and restart Firefox.
