This looks like the timing problems that have occured in the past. You
can try an other timing mechanism by commenting a method in/out in
hd44780.c . There are some comment lines in the file that tell you how
to set these method. Can you try that ?

I vaguely remember that the winamp code in the modular HD44780 driver
is a bit incomplete. But it should work anyway. I'll have a look at it
