Hello everyone,

Because i really really suck, there were not one but two bugs checked in to
lirc; one of them only impacted the hauppauge remotes, the other was not
discovered until just today and impacted all remotes. The one that was fixed
today would have caused lirc to work occaisonally, then after
opening/closing the device some number of times it would eventually stop
working. Things like running irw or starting mythfrontend cause the device
to be opened/closed. If you are experiencing any problems similar to this,
and have obtained lirc packages dated 2/29/04 or later, you may want to
build from today's cvs, or alternatively keep an eye out for
newer packages.

I do apologize for the mayhem and for breaking all of your remotes.
Hopefully the trauma and marital stress some of you have described is
non-permenant. :)
