.net Application causing Keyboard Repeat Rate = 0?

Sometimes when I run my C#  application I am developing the keyboard repeat rate mysteriously goes down all the way. When I check in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Keyboard\KeyboardSpeed it is still set to 30 but in the control panel the slider is all the way at the left. Currently I read and write to the registry in my own tree inside HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software as well as read settings to check .net
versions but don't write anywhere else.

Does anyone have any ideas what is going on? Is the repeat rate stored
somewhere else? Is there an API call I am making with that
unintentional side effect?

Thanks for your help,
