[linux-dvb] Compro VideoMate DVB-T300 remote control repeating buttons

I have a strange problem with the infra-red remote control that  
came with my Compro VideoMate DVB-T300 TV card. Has anyone else
experienced it and does anyone know a solution?

I press a key on the remote - let's call it A (it can be any key).
Later I press another key - let's call it B.
On the second key press, LIRC will recognize AB - ie it will repeat  
the previous key, immediately followed by the key just pressed. This  
happens regardless of the length of time between key presses, even  

This problem has been consistent for over a year with a number of systems:

system 1:
AMD64 3200+  CPU
Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 motherboard with NFORCE3 chipset
64 bit SuSE OSS 10.0 with a 2.6.13 kernel and drivers compiled from the 
v4l-dvb in December 2005

system 2 (actually system 1 with a different linux distribution):
AMD64 3200+  CPU
Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 motherboard with NFORCE3 chipset
Gentoo Linux with 2.6.15r5 kernel

system 3: 
AMD64x2 4600+ CPU
ASUS M2NPV-VM motherboard
Fedora core 6 with kernel label "2.6.20-1.2944.fc6 #1 SMP Tue Apr 10 
17:46:00 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux"

I first posted a message to this group regarding this problem in March 
last year:
