That is a very good question.  Sorry for the delay with my response.

I don't use the keyboard except to restart X or whatever occasional
intervention might be required, but it appears to be working fine.

When I run irw, and recreate the scenario where I repeatedly press the skip
forward button, which is supposed to be interpreted as vcr81 RIGHT, I see
some occasional errors.  Once in a while, I see MENU, and occasionally,
LEFT.   I was not able (with irw testing) to see the command that invokes
the myth speed adjust (vcr81 MUTE maps to myth command "A" since I don't use
volume control with myth), but I have no doubt that it must be doing that
code by mistake too.

Anyway, this could explain why Myth is acting weird lately, but I still
wonder why lirc would start misbehaving after the fc10 upgrade.

Here is my lirc package list:

# rpm -qa | grep lirc

Appreciate any thoughts on this....
