Hmm. I tried this, without much better results. However, a
quick calculation gives me much better accuracy:

LCDproc has been running for 11 hours, 35 minutes. Top
indicates that LCDd has used 0 minutes, 0 seconds of CPU time,
and lcdproc has used 5 minutes, 38 seconds of CPU time.

So, that's 0% of the CPU for LCDd, and 0.81% of the CPU for
lcdproc.

:)
