[mythtv-users] how to stop lircmd interacting with myth menus?

Aha! thanks for the clue. "firefox" is just a wrapper script, at the
end of the script it does an exec of the binary firefox program.
I made a copy of the firefox script, removed the "exec " part, so that
running my private firefox script causes the invoker to wait. This
seems to have persuaded mythtv to not handle lirc input.

btw I think the non-displayed menu text items were because firefox was
running in fullscreen and so mythtv didnt get a chance to redraw
(although I dont know why that would be if firefox really was running
in the background)
