I only could get things to work properly by getting the lirc source for 
0.7.2, and then running ./setup.sh contained within, choosing the 
USB->ATI type I and II selection. make && make install, then ensure 
you're running the new lircd (it should say ircd(atiusb) ready) in your 
log file.

I'm also wondering about your testing methodology... you're placing 
lircd into the background, but running it with the --nodaemon flag.

Perhaps you might just run the --nodaemon instance, and then switch to 
another teminal to run irw.
