Hrm, that's not so good. First report I've seen of anything like this.
Will be digging into lirc_zilog again RSN, will keep an eye out for
possible causes.

Load both lirc_zilog and lirc_dev with debug=1 module options, see
what falls out. After that, its code inspection and possibly manually
adding assorted printk fun and rebuilding a very verbose lirc_zilog
module to try to narrow down where things are going south.
