After update, each button press sent two events

Asked by Aaron Whitehouse on 2011-04-30

I've managed to sort this now, but I'm recording it here for the next poor soul who has to deal with it.

On upgrading from Maverick to Natty, my MCE remote (which previously worked fine) registered two button presses every time that I pressed it once.

irw gave the following:
$ irw
^[[A000000037ff07be1 00 Up mceusb

(note the "^[[A" at the beginning.
