One more thing.  If I press keys on the remote (or on the actual
keyboard) which aren't bound to anything in the menu (like "8" or
"PAUSE"), the irw and libqt outputs are perfectly normal (just like when
mythfrontend isn't running, or when it's doing playback).  Only keys
that cause something to happen in the menus exhibit this behaviour.
