I believe you need to check the repeat = and delay = settings for your
volume keys in your .lircrc file

excerpt from http://www.lirc.org/html/configure.html#lircrc_format documentation

tells the program what shall happen if a key is repeated. A value of
zero tells the program to ignore repeated keys. Any other positive
value 'n' tells the program to pass the config string every 'n'-th
time to the according application, when a key is repeated. The default
for repeat is zero.
tells the program to ignore the specified number of key repeats before
using the "repeat" configuration directive above. This is used to
prevent double triggers of events when using a fast repeat rate. A
value of zero, which also is the default, will disable the delay
