You need to modify your lircrc file.  For any keys with this problem, you
need to set repeat to zero.

Here is the info from lirc.org:
repeattells 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.Here is what this section of my lircrc file look like:

# Numbers 0-9

    prog = mythtv
    button = 0
    repeat = 0
    config = 0

    prog = mythtv
    button = 1
    repeat = 0
    config = 1
