You likely want to turn on udev logging. Edit your /etc/udev/udev.conf
files and set udev_log="yes".
Udev is responsible to device creation and removal, so is likely the
root cause of the problem (although it could still be LIRC). I'd start
logging whilst diagnosing the problem and see if this adds anything.
