When asking question about driver problems, please post your LCDd.conf
configuration to the mailing list (the [server] section and the section the
Driver= entry in the [server] section points to).

You might also try to rebuild your LCDd using a modified command line to
'./configure'. Prepend your ./configure call with the string:
and do the usual 'make' and 'make install' steps.

With my USB CFA35 it made the display erros go away.
