Thanks. I wasn't even aware that I need this package.
Check that it's running, and you should at
least see the computer sending discovery messages (you must of course
run irdadump as root) :

11:30:12.360009 xid:cmd 83d208ff > ffffffff S=6 s=1 (14)

I've configured irda-common to
- serial port (vs. native)
- driver: none (since none matched what I found in the kernel config)
- device: /dev/ircomm0
It starts irattach, and a running irdadump outputs exactly *one* of
the above lines. /etc/init.d/irda restarts a new instance of
irattach. /etc/init.d/irda stop does not terminate them. kill does
neither. kill -9 finally does. /etc/init.d/irda start does make
irdadump issue one line again.
I've rebooted my laptop and tried again (without any sleep cycle
inbetween), no joy.
