Yeah. My reply was aimed at the OP. In your case, something different
is likely happening. I also use the ATI Remote Wonder for my system,
and I, too, am plagued by the remote's equivalent of "double-clicks."
In the case of the "mouse cursor" (which I use as buttons, not as a
mouse), I'm pretty certain the cause is its analog nature--i.e. I try to
hit down, but instead hit down|right-down|down, so the extra different
key means it's not a "multiple keypress."
As for the other buttons, I'm not sure what's happening. I'm starting
to think it may have something to do with the remote's only sending the
signal when the button is pressed firmly--meaning that if I press the
button enough for it to send and my finger wiggles enough to cause an
on-off-on, LIRC may detect that the timing is not right for a remote's
sending a repeat and assumes I just hit the button twice... Of course,
this is all conjecture with no evidence to support it, so...

Neither do I, but then again, I just recently upgraded to 0.7.0 final
and haven't had time to play with the new stuff, yet. So, maybe we both
should have it... I plan to play around with repeat, delay, and
min_repeat. I'll let you know if I improve things...
(BTW, did your 0.7.0pre lircd.conf stop working with 0.7.0 final? I had
to re-program my remote with irrecord because all the codes changed... ???)
