So, it's not about the hardware. The culprit is then most likely the
kernel, there are changes made in the IR subsystem.
Unfortunately, the 0.9.0 version is really old. The current version is
0.9.4, but this is not officially yet packaged for Debian. If you want
to help tracking down this the first step would be to update to 0.9.4 so
we have some fresh code to start with. The upstream release  contains
a debian source package which hopefully can be used to update.
However, be aware the 0.9.4 is quite a different beast than 0.9.0. In
particular, the configuration has changed. Please read the
debian/README.Debian file as a starter after unpacking the tarball as
described in README.md.
If you can reproduce the bug on 0.9.4 we have a reasonable start to
track this down. If we are lucky, the update might even solve the
problem. Don't hold your breath, though.
