That's irrelevant, actually. Its the kernel module that matters here, 
not the userspace portion. What kernel version? Looking at lirc_serial 
more is on my TODO list for next week...

Do you know if it was auto-detected as active low previously? Definitely

Load lirc_serial with the module param 'debug=1', see what else it says. 
You can try fiddling with other module options as well.
