I've got the same problem.  I've searched the archives without much
luck.  The only thing that gets close is a guy who said fixed the
issue by updating his lirc-kmdl file.

I'm using FC4-i386 and atrpms.  I immediately tried to upgrade to see
if there was a newer version available.  Unfortunately I'm getting 404
errors for the stable branch of atrpms right now.
