[mythtv-users] 0.18.1 on x86_64 and lirc not working

I am having a similar problem - only everything was working fine  
before I upgraded from .18 to .18.1.   x86_64 FC3 using Jarod's guide  
and using Yum. I didn't have any problems or errors upgrading myth or  
any of the other packages.

Lircd is running fine and I can see remote commands coming through  
irw, but mythfrontend is not responding to any remote commands.  I  
can still use my power button to kill mythfrontend and restart it  
(from jarod's script).

Wife Annoyance Factor is going up by the minute -  any help is much
