I have exactly this problem as well. It never happened with versions
before 0.19.

For me, it has this pattern:

start mythfrontend, everything works fine. Watch liveTV or a recording,
exit out back to the menus and every button press is doubled so it is
virtually impossible to navigate through the menus. This happens with
both keyboard and remote.

If I exit out of mythfrontend and start it up again, it works fine until
I watch TV again.

I also suspect that lirc has something to do with it, as I'm not sure
mine is set up correctly.
But that doesn't explain why watching TV causes the problem to occur.

Its very annoying!
