Holding a key down in game repeats as if I'm typing instead of holding

When I hold a key in a game, the key is not held. Instead, it holds for a moment and then stops and repeats - the behavior you expect to see when typing. The most obvious example is holding tab in Counter-Strike causes the scoreboard to flash instead of being shown continuously. Other issues caused by this is jittery movement when using wasd.

This behavior is fairly recent (started maybe 2-3 week ...
