Seems to have the same problem for me.

[root at mythfrontend2 ~]# uname -a
Linux mythfrontend2 #1 SMP Wed Dec 15
22:45:07 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Again the irw output from pressing a single Up after several Downs:

[root at mythfrontend2 ~]# irw
0001006c00000001 00 Down devinput
0001006700000001 00 Up devinput
