I was hoping to test last night but didn't get a chance.  Hopefully I can get to it tonight or tomorrow.

For what it's worth, my display was doing what dacorsa's is (namely it would die VERY quickly) so it's possible that the patch will work with a longer delay.

dacorsa, try setting the time to 20 instead of 2 and see if that helps at all...

I suspect you may have a separate issue there, as this is mainly  
targeted at displays that start out working, but apparently get  
overwhelmed by how fast we occasionally try writing to them.

I gave the patch a go on my VFD last night, and where I used to  
routinely get at least a few send_packet failures when stopping LCDd,  
I get none, so the patch seems to help here. Still need to hear from  
others that are experiencing more severe issues though.
