I am still running with the same user account of mythtv and it does  
have the lirc file in /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc which is the same  
file I have been using for weeks.

  Also the file permission for my /dev/lircd file our as follows.

crw-rw---- 1 root root 61, 0 2008-07-09 23:01 /dev/lirc0
crw-rw---- 1 root root 61, 1 2008-07-09 23:01 /dev/lirc1
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root     0 2008-07-09 23:01 /dev/lircd
srw-rw-rw- 1 root root     0 2008-07-09 23:01 /dev/lircd1
