This is pretty new hardware not supported in lirc 0.8.3, but staging in 
upstream cvs leading towards 0.8.4.

Unfortunately just adding the USB ID is not sufficient, further logic 
changes are required to lirc_imon[1] to support these devices properly.
As you can see from the referenced upstream patch, the changes are 
reasonable, but do not meet the freeze exemption criterias for lenny, so
this unfortunately won't be possible to fix before lenny gets released -
especially taking into regard that there's at least one further upload
required for lenny, hopefully also a second targetting a (or rather 2) 
sysfs related oopses in lirc_imon.
