I had a similar pain of a time getting my MCE remote to work with 
lirc-0.9.0 on kernel 2.6.38 but I did eventually manage to get it 
working.  It was some time ago and I can't remember exactly what 
eventually fixed it, but one thing that I have in my local start scripts is

echo "rc-6" > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols

I think this might have been the key.
