Geek window's keys per second are inaccurate
Hi there. I believe that the %InstantKeyRate% and similar statistics showing speed are inaccurate, showing about half the intended speed.
I'm assuming, of course, that these statistics are supposed to count keys per second, but currently they pretty much count keys per half a second.
You can test it out yourself using https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sZD0Avi8Qs , try pressing a key in sync with the beats for as long as you want. For me the %InstantKeyRate% shows about 1.00 as opposed to the intended 2.00 (120 bpm being 2 beats per second).

I'm not sure about the Unpulsed Key Rate, as that's harder to test, and I don't even know what the Total Key Rate is supposed to show.

EDIT: I forgot that the KPS variables for geek window were added in the 2.4.1 beta, so I should've posted it in that thread instead. Sorry.

EDIT 2: It seems that the UnpulsedKeyRate is working fine, only the InstantKeyRate (InstantClickRate implicitly) is showing half of what it should.

RE: Geek window's keys per second are inaccurate
Very nice catch, there was a miscalculation in there. It takes the last 5 seconds for an average, but the method ran every 0,5 second, so it was exactly half of what it should be.

Thanks!
