I recently helped setup an MCE 2005 remote with lirc, and also had the 
intermittent detection/module loading problems.  The stable combination 
ended up being lirc 0.7.0 built from source, kernel built from 
source, and Martin Blatter's driver.  This was a couple months ago and 
that combination of lirc/kernel/driver is still running with no 
detection/loading problems, and the remote is fully functional.
