sluggish performance with MCE remote

Hamish Moffatt
I'm using a Media Center remote with USB receiver and there's a
significant delay between button presses getting to applications (irw
and mythfrontend). If I press buttons quickly then I see them all coming
out on irw with delay between each.

I have LIRC 0.9.0 (0.9.0-ubuntu6 from Ubuntu xenial), and kernel 4.4.0.
The USB receiver is

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0471:0815 Philips (or NXP) eHome Infrared Receiver

My kernel drivers are

I found posts in the archives suggesting this was a bug at one point and
fixed years ago. Can anyone help with a solution?

I've attached my lircd.conf.
