Well, that's strange... Funny, are you running FreeBSD? bzero was a
BSD'ism... Maybe we didn't get an include file someplace that caused
that warning... Line 87 is the FD_ZERO macro. FD_ZERO must be declared
in terms of bzero...

That's not good. Again, what OS are you using? You probably don't have
/proc for getting the load averages and CPU information. There is code
for alternate implementations. It would help to see your config.h.

The LCDPROC client is connecting, and then promptly dying.

What do you mean by a screen refresh? Are you saying you can actually
see the screen cleared and then repainted one character at a time?

What kind of LCD do you have attached?
