I like your theory, but I have the same exact issue and I'm not using
lirc.  I'm just using a mouse program that sends keypresses with xte...so
I think that rules out lirc's code entirely?  I think it's just something
to do with KDE...funny thing is, it used to work properly (about three
weeks ago?) with the cvs releases.  Not to bark up the wrong tree, but the
change seems to coincide with my switching over to Sasquatch (but I'm sure
that's not the problem.)
