[lirc] No output from irw, but cat /dev/lirc0 and mode2 /dev/lirc0 work fine

There seems to be some sort of problem with the socket, /var/run/lirc/lircd.

I don't think it's a permission issue because I tried running irw as root. Also, the default permissions on the socket are rw-rw-rw.

I have the Windows MCE reciever/irblaster (however I think the device itself is working fine because I see raw output from /dev/lirc0.
