Why does holding down the RETURN key not auto-repeat under Windows 9x/ME?

Windows 9x/ME has a bug that involves characters read via ReadConsoleInput() also showing up via ReadFile(). Our workaround for this does not allow auto-repeat to work for the return key. Auto-repeat will work for ALT-RETURN.
