FWIW, lirc-0.7.0pre8 (built from source) is working OK here with 
ivtv-0.2.0-rc2b (built from source) and PVR-350.

This is with Mandrake 10.1 and stock kernel. Myth 0.16 
rpms are from http://rpm.nyvalls.se/graphics10.0.html.

This is probably a red herring but I need to say for completeness that I 
made the following change (since I use ivtv):


diff -r -u lirc-0.7.0pre8/drivers/lirc_i2c/lirc_i2c.c
