[mythtv-users] LIRCD will load as root.. But not as mythtv?

I am having similar problems with lirc not starting at boot.  It will 
start manually after I load the kernel module, and  "service lircd 
start" as root.  One caveat for me is that Jarod's patch for 
rc.sysinit-mm.diff doesn't work for me. It returns:
Hunk #1 FAILED on 206
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED

regarding the current thread I don't have a file named 10-lirc.rules in 
/etc/udev/rules.d/, but there is one named lirc.rules
It contains this:

KERNEL="lirc[0-9]*",    NAME="lirc%n"
KERNEL="lirc0",         SYMLINK="lirc"

I am running FC5 and have followed Jarod's outline.  Any thoughts would 
be appreciated.

Correcting my own typos:

  KERNEL="lirc[0-9]*" SYMLINK="lirc" GROUP="mythtv" MODE="0666"
