> So it autodetects such apparatus?

yeah - kind of. it checks with the system interface (irkick) to see if a 
connection to the lirc device is available. if so it lists the remote 
controls that are available.

problem with a static disabling would be that the lirc device driver may 
simply be unloaded at the time of login or that the ir-receiver is not 
plugged in.

yeah that would be ok.

the string freeze would have to be lifted for any of this to take place
