As a work-around, I believe you can do Alt-Q, reset the key to be repeated 
to F1, and you should get a new "load" of the CW message with symmetrical 
speed up/speed down control characters.

But more to the point, why bother with speed-ups within a very short CQ or 
other message?  I've never understood the utility of sending "Callsign [up 
up up]599 [dwn dwn dwn] 100" anyway.  In bad conditions, all that does is 
to slightly screw up my expectation of when the real variable in the 
exchange is coming.
