As I wrote in the bug report, I see no reason why a directive in the conf file should be ignored. The patch would only negatively affect a conf file where someone has included a spurious 'post' or 'pre' directive, and the conf file only works because luckily a bug prevents that spurious directive to have an effect.

Thanks for filing. That said, I'm moving this bug upstream to
https://sf.net/p/lirc/tickets/319/. In that bug I have also repeated my
reply, which basically requests some feedback from you. Let's keep
discussion in the upstream bug, it really belongs there.
