Wasn't aware it was that intensive.  Plus I figured the command would sit in
a queue somewhere rather than being dropped entirely.
No scaling happening (cpuspeed daemon is off).  Fedora Core 6.

So do I need to set the lircd binary as setuid root or give it a realtime
priority?  My previous mythbox never had this problem.  At worst the command
would be queued and appear a second or so after you pressed the button.  It
wasn't dropped.
