I have as similar problem. On some channels, the repeat toggles between
the next and the original channel. Starting from other channels, it is
working better, but at some position, it switches back to the original
channel and the sequence restarts.

If that matters, the repeat frequency of my keyboard is quite fast,
about 2-3 events per second.

Didn't test this (no keyboard connected).

For me it's remote-0.3.4 plus some other plugins.
