I'm pretty sure this is due to a missing LSB dependency on $local_fs 
for lirc's init script. A fix for this is pending[1], but right now 
still blocked due to a larger change required to find an RC bug. It 
would be nice if you could confirm that this change to /etc/init.d/lirc
fixes the problem for you as well, followed by:

	update-rc.d -f lirc remove
	update-rc.d lirc defaults 19

to make insserv actually reorder lirc's init script.
