[mythtv-users] Why does mythtv responds to lirc when in the background?

Hello everyone.  I have the latest 9.10 based mythbuntu based setup with an lirc configuration copied from my previous setup which was based on the http://wilsonet.com/mythtv/  (FC6)
There are a couple problems I have with my setup:

1. mythfrontend doesn't respond to my remote control for the first two minutes or so from having launched it.  The keyboard works.  This isn't a big deal but is odd; it wasn't like this on my former setup.  When I look in  mythfrontend.log I see that mythtv successfully initializes LIRC right away on startup.

2. I have recently been having fun with Boxee to get content that I don't get on cable.  However if mythfrontend is still running (in the background of course), it responds to all of my remote control presses.  How shall I go about troubleshooting/fixing this problem?
