Oh, suckage. Hrm.

Oh. Hrm (again). You would think so. I had a theory for a second, but
then I read some more code, and it didn't seem like that theory made
sense any more, particularly after I re-read your original mail... Ugh.
At the moment, I'm coming up empty. My own device works flawlessly with
both its original iMON remote and an actual MCE remote that came w/one
of my tv capture cards. Haven't tried programming my own Harmony remote
as an MCE remote to see how it behaves. Perhaps that should be my next
step towards attempting to understand what's going on.
Note that very little has changed recently around the handling of
delivering key presses detected by lirc_imon to lirc_dev to lircd
either, which makes this even more odd...
