If you add that to your .lircrc, wont it process the irexec bit and
ignore the prog = mythtv bit?  In other words, if you make it execute
click.sh via irexec for the "right" button, wont it ignore the "right"
listing found later in the .lircrc file (assuming you added the irexec
portion at the beginning of the file)?
