This did the expected scroll up and down through the submenu. While the submenu was still on the screen I picked up the logitech and pushed up and down and it worked perfectly.

Given irw is doing as you expect with the exception of the double 
commands, then it may be in your lircrc. In lircrc, the repeat tag will 
absorb the duplicate key press and that is probably why your menus are 
only advancing once for double commands. You may wish to verify that 
your lircrc is correct for your set up. There are many many variations 
out there so it is hard to say what is in yours. But do check that it is 
mapped as you would expect with ir command to myth command.
