Key repeat doesn't work, sometimes hitting space doesn't move cursor. This is on a week-old MacBook Air. I've jiggered the options in the Keyboard Settings options. Any suggestions?

My brand new MacBook Air seems to have a balky keyboard. Keys don't repeat. I have put the delay on shortest option and I have selected a pretty rapid repeat option. Occasionally, tapping the spacebar does not advance the cursor. Is there a software fix for this? I don't want to return the machine to the dealer.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Time Capsule 1T
