Thanks for continuing to help.

Bummer. Well, I could live without it I guess.

Easier said than done.

I looked around on the net, and the closest advice I could find about 
the lircd.conf file was that the toggle_bit setting needs to be "2". 
Mine is already at "2". I tried "1" and "3" to see what would happen, 
and both made the remote unusable.

I did come across this thread which claimed to have a workaround in the 
lircrc file:

Basically, one adds:
config = echo '' > /dev/null
... before every config setting so that the first of the double signals 
is ignored.

Didn't make any difference on my computer.

It's probably also worth mentioning that the double hit problem doesn't 
happen within MythTV, only when launching and using Amarok.

Is it possible I have maybe two instances of irexec running or something 
like that?
