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

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  was the
But anyway, the reported issue was most likely in my local configuration
