I'm not at home at the moment, but I believe it is indeed the x10 remote.
As for the driver, it will be using whatever the default is - I plugged it
in and it appeared in /dev/input/ automagically. I can check and confirm
later though.

I get many events from just pressing the key once. I used to be able to tap
the keys very quickly and just get a single event, but I think the
behaviour has changed with the newer kernel in Dapper (or one of the
updates of it, I'm not sure exactly when this started because I don't use
the remote all the time)

I'm not sure exactly what that is, but since the device is presented as a
"standard" input device, might I be able to use some system tool to control
the repeat rate? All I can find thus far is kbdrate, which doesn't seem to
let me specify which input device I want it to alter.
