REPEATDELAY is the time from the first keypress until the repeat
function actually kicks in. I'm afraid I don't see how this would
have an effect here.

Ok, if the events from LIRC are actually more than 250ms apart,
then skipping one could result in the repeatDelay timeout to
expire. So maybe you should rather try increasing REPEATTIMEOUT
in remote.c. I'd say a value of 1000 should really be enough for any
remote control (after all, a repeat function is supposed to be _fast_ ;-).
