It is my understanding that repeating is the way it is supposed to work. 
  If I open a console and run irw I get lots of repeats.  To slow down 
the repeats that get sent to MythTV you can edit your .lircrc file.  The 
repeat = x determines how often another event is sent.

repeat = 4

means every 4th code gets sent on as an event.

repeat = 1

means every code gets sent.

repeat = 0

should stop repeat from being sent.
