It's definitely got nothing to do with the config or channel changing 
script, as I changed neither.

After lots of testing, I had come to the conclusion that the reason 
for the problem in the first place was that lirc was getting 
interrupted while toggling the serial port line at what is an 
unusually high rate (56 KHz.)

So either the newer lirc I'm now using is more tolerant of 
interrupts, or the newer kernel no longer interrupts when it should 
not (or both.)
