(lircd sends twice)

ok, here is how i solved the issue:
- start mythfrontend
- navigate to setup -> setup -> general (after switching myth to english)
- on page 4 of the general settings, the config entry is called
"keypress application" in the english version.
note: in german localization this entry is simply called "LIRC script",
this was bugging me... i should have read the help text more closely...
i admit that the help text clearly describes what this config entry
is meant for - it is NOT meant to point it to a .lircrc file, which
by the way isn't even executable...
- i have reset this entry to a blank value now (no script/application)
on both of my boxes, and i am done now.
however, a restart of mythfrontend was necessary afterwards to have this
setting in effect, and after that no lirc events were doubled anymore :-)
thanks for your help!
this list is as good and useful as mythtv itself, thanks to all the myth
devels and list supporters out there, good job!
