[vdr] Remote/keyboard seen during configuration, but not during normal use

Hi folks.  I recently lost the hard disk in my year-old VDR system and have
had to rebuild from almost scratch.   Everything is working except for the
remote/keyboard.  I've gone over things time and time again, but don't see
anywhere that I've made a mistake.  I've done quite a bit of searching (web
and mailing list) and haven't found anything really helpful.  I'm hoping
someone here can point me in the right direction.

Like I said in the subject, VDR will see the remote and keyboard long enough
to create the remote.conf file, but when configuration is complete and VDR
switches to normal 'show video' mode, both the remote and keyboard are
ignored.

Note that evtest output is normal, and that with IR debugging enabled, the
remote keypresses show up in the log as expected.

Installation details (note- I've tried to rebuild the system the same as it
was prior to the crash):
*  Vanilla installation of Debian Sarge, 2.6.8 kernel recompiled from
Debian-provided sources using the kernel config from the original (working)
system.
*  In-kernel (non-CVS) DVB driver
*  Full featured Nexus card with the grey remote
*  VDR 1.3.20 compiled from source
*  Remote plugin version 0.3.3
*  Loading hauppauge_grey.rc5 via av7110_loadkeys after inserting dvb-ttpci,
prior to running VDR
*  Running VDR from the command line (not as a daemon) via ssh and screen.

I don't see anything out of place in the syslog:

Here are some keypresses from the log -

And the related entries from remote.conf

remote-event0._Setup     /proc/av7110_ir 00000000 31
remote-event0.Ok         0000000100010026
remote-event0.Up         0000000100010021
remote-event0.Down       0000000100010022
remote-event0.Left       0000000100010012
remote-event0.Right      0000000100010011


I'm really running into a wall here.  What am I missing?

Thanks,

Benj
