robert at mystic:~$ ls -l ~/.lircrc /home/robert/.mythtv/lircrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 robert users 7079 2006-11-27 21:36 /home/robert/.lircrc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 robert users   10 2006-11-27 18:19 
/home/robert/.mythtv/lircrc -> ../.lircrc

I'm using a iMon remote, and when I change the prog from mythtv to 
irxevent, stuff works fine:

     prog = mythtv
     button = Esc
     config = Esc

#    prog = irxevent
#    button = Esc
#    config = Key Escape CurrentWindow

mythfrontend is not opening a socket to the lircd daemon.  The question 
is, how is that supposed to happen.  Is there a configuration someplace 
that's not set correctly?  I had mythtv up and running before I had 
support for lirc, then I re-compiled mythtv with the enable-lirc.
