Hm... Its working for me... But I haven't been rebooting much at all...

Indeed... No clue why that's happening though... :-\

It really is pre3. That was covered a while back on the list. Something
to do with the way the lirc code is in CVS, or something... Verify what
you've got with "rpm -qa |grep lirc" and you shouldn't see any pre1
stuff, and you can verify by compiling current lirc cvs source

I'm most of the way through another clean install myself on a dev box
(w/my PVR-350). I'll see if I can dig anything up...
