[users] Lirc + CentOS5 + rpmforge

I upgraded to 5.3.  to get yum to work i had to remove alot of atrpm's
rpms.  after getting tired of all the dependency conflictions with atrpms
and rpmforge i started remove every package i can find from atrpms and
installing the same one from rpmforge.

so far i have been pretty successful.  I have only one package that i am
having issues with.  That being lirc.  kinda a big one for mythtv.

i have the following packages installed from rpmforge.
[myth at mythtv ~]$ rpm -qa |grep lirc

I saw dkms build the kernel module on reboot (man that is nicer than kmdl's)
but when i start lirc it seg faults right away

[root at mythtv ~]# lircd -n
lircd 0.6.6: error in configfile line 1594931104:
lircd 0.6.6: unknown definiton or too few arguments: " ÂË[Ù* ÂË[Ù*"
lircd 0.6.6: reading of config file failed
lircd 0.6.6: Segmentation fault
[root at mythtv ~]#

lircd.conf file is simple and the same as before with atrpms rpms:
[root at mythtv ~]# cat /etc/lircd.conf

end remote

The odd part is when i retry the to start lirc the too few arg symbols
change but it always say line 1594931104.

i clearly dont have that many lines in the config.  where is the issue?
