Yeah, there's a fix already in the packaging.  Planning on uploading it when I upload a 0.9 snapshot soon to natty.  Here's the updated init script you'll need:

Check /sys/class/rc/rc0/protocols and I bet you'll see that both in-kernel
and userspace (lirc) decode are enabled. The Ubuntu lirc initscript was
disabling in-kernel decode previously via /sys/devices/virtual/rc/... but
those bits got moved. Mario is aware of the problem and I believe was
planning to push an updated package for Ubuntu.
