hm... seems that you have multiple protocols enabled in the kernel. This
part of the kernel interfaces seems far from stable, once upon a time
enabling the lirc protocol disabled the others.

What  happens if you disable all protocols besides lirc using something

    # echo -- -rc-5 > /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols

Sorry, this is from te top of my head -- I'm on the Swedish countryside
by the Polar Circle enjoying Xmas. Here are no IR controls whatsoever,
but plenty of snow and a strengthening -20 degrees C. Merry  Xmas!
