Sorry for the late reply, I haven't had time to play around with the 
problematic machine. I downloaded the experimental lirc 0.8.3 packages 
and tested with them: Lirc compiled & works ok with my 2.6.25 kernel! 
The 0.8.3 package seems to work really well, I haven't had any problems 
with it so far.

I downgraded the lirc packages back to unstable's 0.8.2-2 now and 
recompiled the lirc modules. After installing the modules & restarting 
lirc everything still worked ok. So the problem must have been not in 
the lirc-modules package and instead some kind of a configuration 
problem on my machine. Unfortunately I regenerated my lirc configuration 
at the same when I installed the experimental 0.8.3 package and 
accidentally forgot to save the old config - so I don't have any oops or 
config information, I'm very sorry.

The lirc-modules-source package that I downloaded from [4] was the 
following one:


But anyway, the reported issue was most likely in my local configuration 
and the bugreport was invalid. Sorry for the noise and thank you for 
your help & fast response!!
