same issue for me.  Don't know why this happens, and I may just
turn-off pop-ups.  If I reset the system (just a keybinding with lirc
to restart gdm), that gets rid of the pop-ups.  Not a good solution.

Not an issue for me because I don't use my mythbox to change any
volumes.  I adjust the volume on the receiver.  If I had to guess
though, I am betting your config file on your last installation had a
remote keys bound to the commands to increase and decrease the volume
in mplayer.  You should try tweaking that file (~/.mythtv/lircrc).  I
do not know what the command is for increasing and decreasing the
volume in mplayer, but once you figure that out, use this model stanze
for mute in mplayer, and adjust accordingly (MUTE to whatever your
lircd.conf file names your volume up and down keys and mute to
whatever mplayer expects you to enter):

prog = mplayer
button = MUTE
repeat = 4
config = mute
