Ack. Sorry, I meant to ask if you were running the frontend as root, not the 
backend. The frontend user is the one that has to be able to read lircrc, so 
if you're running the frontend as a user other than root, they won't be able 
to read it. And you really shouldn't be running the frontend as root (though 
I seem to recall it being a requirement for use with Ivor's libddmpeg for the 
cle266).
