Thanks for the help!  I found the setting for the select in the guide. 
Utilities/Setup -> Setup -> TV Settings -> Program Guide -> page 2

I checked my .lircrc file, and, interestingly enough, for the keys that
are the most problematic (exit, select, etc), I don't have "repeat ="
values set for them, so they _should_ be the default of 0.  Perhaps I
will try hard coding them to "0" just to be sure..
