Thanks, it makes sense now. I've modified the myhttv settings in ~/.lirc so that my 'Play' button sends 'Return', it was previously configured to send 'P', which explains the behaviour I was getting. I'm not sure if it's possible to put 'Ctrl+P' into a lirc config file, so I went for the safe option :)

It's very possible I did this previously on my 0.21 box, but I no longer have it so I can't check.
