It seems this problem symptom is not all that uncommon, but has varying causes.  I've seen other reports that were solved by things I already had correct.

One of the frontend config options saved in the database is the path
to your lircd socket. In your old system, it was /dev/lircd, its now
at /var/run/lirc/lircd. Poke through the frontend config (within
mythfrontend, not mythtv-setup), and you should find the lirc socket
config option screen. Change it to /var/run/lirc/lircd and you ought
to be all set.
