This was cross-posted to mythtvtalk, but I figure my response on this topic
is probably useful on the mailing list, too.

Anyway, in my experience, the events generated by lircd will go to *all*
lirc clients, unless of course someone knows of a way to prevent this.
Obviout this is a pain if you're using, say, Xine and find MythTV responding
to your button presses, as well.  As a result, I was forced to use an X
event generation approach, rather than native lirc support (such as
irxevent, irexec + xmacro, or my own irxkeys tool).
