Then it's most likely done at the wrong place.

Here is what I've tested:
- Started installation from CD (Beta4)
- After YaST has started:
- switch to vc2
- edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config to allow password logins
- set a root password
- did: ifconfig eth0 up
- did: dhcpcd eth0
- ran: rcsshd start
- logged in from remote
(1) - on vc2 ran /bin/sh /usr/lib/YaST2/startup/ installation inital
(2) - navigated thru welcome screen purely by mouse
- when 'mode' screen showed did: 'xset r on -display :0; xterm -display :0;
input in xterm had autorepeat.
- redid step (1) and (2)
- when 'mode' screen showed did: xterm -display :0;
input in xterm had *NO* autorepeat.

So it is possible to turn it on doing 'xset r on'.
Since I don't know what actions you are performing in YaST I cannot tell you
where to turn it on. Please check your YaST command sequences and find out
where you have to enable autorepeat.
