	I think this is what I've been missing. I found if I disabled everything
	except the lirc protocol everything worked:

# ir-keytable
Found /sys/class/rc/rc0/ (/dev/input/event4) with:
        Name: Media Center Ed. eHome Infrared Remote Transceiver (0471:060c)
        Driver: mceusb, table: rc-rc6-mce
        lirc device: /dev/lirc0
        Supported protocols: lirc rc-5 rc-5-sz jvc sony nec sanyo mce_kbd rc-6 sharp xmp
        Enabled protocols: lirc
        bus: 3, vendor/product: 0471:060c, version: 0x0101
        Repeat delay = 500 ms, repeat period = 125 ms

	No more phantom X events. Everything is pure lirc using the "default"
	driver instead of "devinput".

	Many, many thanks and Compliments of the Season to you and
	yours... sounds like you are having fun in the Polar Circle in the
