Fix committed to CVS.
Thanks for spotting the bug.

No, I will not do that.

In the LCDproc client-server schmeme, client screens stay on the screen as
long as the client is connected and tells the server to display them.

Making exceptions for "the last screen of the last client" makes the
rendering section more complex (cause it does not know what "the last screen"
may be and thus has to copy any screen update as long as only one client is
connected) and breaks that straightforward logic.

The solution is simple: keep your client running as long as you want to have
the client message shown on the display.

Peter
