[mythtv-users] Strange behavior with LIRC for pause button

I'm just getting LIRC and my remote running. I'm using an IRA serial
adapter with the IRMAN driver. With one exception, things are working fine.
The odd behavior is that the Pause button (mapped to the "P" key) seems
to have to be held down in order to work. I can see, from running irw,
that a single key press transmits the code once, as expected. Holding
the key down transmits it multiple times, again as expected.
On screen, the Pause/Play overlay "flickers" between "Pause" and "Play"
when you hold the key down. Pressing the key once doesn't toggle
between Pause/Play. Holding it down a few seconds (and observing in irw
that multiple codes are transmitted, and seeing the overlay "flicker")
DOES (somewhat) reliably toggle between Pause/Play (there seems to be an
acceptable "margin" of error for how long you hold it down -- "a few
seconds" works, more or less does not).
So it's not really a functional problem, since I *can* use the feature.
It's just "uncomfortable" to the person using the remote.
I have this in my lircd.conf:
one 0 0
zero 0 0
And this in my lircrc:
prog = mythtv
button = pause
repeat = 10
config = P
I've tried values of 0, 1, 3, and 10 for repeat. The behavior seems to
be the same.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
