Bug Description

When the bound key is held down before the Super key, Superkb will perform the associated action multiple times.

Apparently, this is because autorepeat is not getting disabled for the pressed down key.

description: updated

It might be related: the bound key gets stuck and gets indefinitely sent
to the next focused application after the Super key is released.
