[Pkg-lirc-maint] Bug#373871: One more verification for sanity

I just received fresh LTS disks of dapper today (I'd been working off my own
installs that were dist-upgraded).  So just to verify that I wasn't entirely
crazy, I fired one up for a clean dapper environment without modifications
to work under and make sure that I didn't do any odd configurations.

This is the exact procedure I followed to verify that still my transmitters
don't work under dapper if anyone wants to repeat the procedures:

0) Boot up a Ubuntu 6.06 LTS  Live disk
1) Download archives for lirc & svgalib from packages.debian.org
2) Enable universe/multiverse in synaptic
3) sudo apt-get install fakeroot dpkg-dev dialog module-assistant setserial
4) sudo apt-get build-dep lirc
5) dpkg-source -x svgalib_1.4.3-23.dsc
6) fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage
7) cd.. &&  sudo dpkg -i libsvga1*.deb
8) dpkg-source -x lirc_0.8.0-5.dsc
9) cd lirc-0.8.0
10) fakeroot dpkg-buildpackage
11) sudo dpkg -i liblirc*deb lirc*.deb
12) sudo m-a update,prepare
13) "configure" the files in /etc/lirc
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source
  Here are the results that I got:
    A) /etc/lirc/lirc-modules-source.conf

#   lirc-modules-source config file used by Debian GNU/Linux

# Space separated list of lirc kernel drivers to build

# It87 module configuration

# Parallel module configuration

# Serial module configuration

# Sir module configuration

    B) /etc/lirc/lircd.conf
begin remote

          power                 0x00000000000040BF
      end codes

end remote

    C) /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
# Arguments which will be used when launching lircd

#use the first lircd for mceusb
LIRCD_ARGS="-d /dev/lirc0 --output=/dev/lircd --listen"

#Don't start lircmd even if there seems to be a good config file

#Try to load appropriate kernel modules

# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers.
# If DEVICE is set to /dev/lirc and devfs is in use /dev/lirc/0 will be
# automatically used instead

# Default configuration files for your hardware if any

14) sudo m-a a-i lirc
15) sudo depmod -a
16) sudo setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none
17) sudo modprobe lirc-serial
18) sudo /etc/init.d/lirc restart
19) test via irsend
    irsend SEND_ONCE Samsung power

I experimented with the Software Carrier option and without it in the clean
dapper enviroment.  I got the transmitter to work 1 out of the 30 times I
tried, and that was with Software Carrier disabled.
