I'm running SuSE 9.1 with vanilla 2.6.12 and self compiled lirc 0.7.2. 

I think the issue is the iteraction between mythbackend and lirc (but I have 
no idea why mythbackend would be talking to lirc). I don't have the problem 
if I don't load mythbackend - the remote works fine. So I shall go and post 
on the mythtv list.
