It sounds like you're using the native myth support for lirc. I'm using
irxevent (and irexec) instead, which sends synthetic X keyboard events
to myth. So my config file is ~/.lircrc not ~/mythtv/.lircrc. I have to
stop irxevent and irexec when I stop lircd and unload lirc_mceusb2 and
then restart these after resume. This works OK.
