I do remember see that error. I wonder if i's anything to do with the
evdev stuff I put in my xorg.conf?

I remember on my first build (Fedora Core 3) I had to modprobe the
evdev driver, but when I rebuilt using (Fedora Core 6) the evdev
driver module had disappeared and I found the magic incantantion
above. I can't remember if I ever checked whether the irrecord
statement worked without it though.
I guess it woouldn't hurt to add that block to your xorg.conf, restart
X, and see what happens.
Otherwise I'm out of ideas.
