[mythtv-users] lirc acting very bizarrely

I have fixed just about all the issues from my fedora 14 to 16
upgrade.  However, a new issue just spontaneously came up.  My remote
was working fine and now, all of a sudden, it is not.  Half the keys
don't work or seem to be mapped to functions that are not defined in
my lircrc file.

For example, the OK does nothing.  When I hit the Play key, a big icon
pops up that is a circle with a slash through it (international no
sign).  When I hit the keys bound to page up and page down, a volume
indicator pops up and adjusts the volume.  I have these keys set for
something different in my lircrc file.

I know this is not a myth issue because when I quit myth, I still get
these icons with these buttons.  I can't for the life of me figure out
what application is doing this as I have not really installed anything
since it was working.  Any ideas?
