[Pkg-lirc-maint] Bug#617417: liblircclient0: Breaks inputlirc.

Package: liblircclient0
Version: 0.9.0~pre1-1
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks unrelated software


After the update to version 0.9.0..., inputlircd doesn't work anymore (in
mplayer), with the following message in /var/log/syslog:

inputlircd: Error processing event from js0: Success

mplayer gives its usual output when there's no lirc device:

mplayer: could not connect to socket

Just downgrading to 0.8.3-5 makes it work again.

Best regards,
Christian Ohm
