I'll try to explain better how the remote works for me. I'm not sure if the 
problem is really the same, but it sounded similar, so I decided to tell 
about it on this thread...

At first, maybe for about ten keypresses after boot or reloading the drivers, 
the remote works perfectly. The event happens immediately after pressing the 

Then it goes into a mode where I have to press the key for a long time before 
anything happens. And when the event actually occurs, then it often also 
generates a repeat. I tried repeat=0 to stop this unwanted repeat from 
occurring, but it didn't work very well.

I tried to get an evtest log of the situation:

Event: time 1173221474.755429, type 1 (Key), code 103 (Up), value 1
Event: time 1173221474.755434, type 0 (Reset), code 0 (Reset), value 0
Event: time 1173221475.155711, type 1 (Key), code 103 (Up), value 2
Event: time 1173221475.155716, type 0 (Reset), code 0 (Reset), value 0
Event: time 1173221475.219704, type 1 (Key), code 103 (Up), value 0
