Just to add a bit more clarity.

The LIRC project provides drivers for otherwise unsupported RC hardware.
 For dvb-usb receivers it just piggybacks off the /dev/input device
file.  No driver from LIRC is used.  The LIRC involvement is purely in
userspace.  This is not a LIRC problem.  The problem arises whether or
not lircd is started.

The problem is suppressed if the disable_rc_polling parameter in dvb_usb
is set to 1 but obviously this disables all RC support.
