[Lcdproc] HD44780: problems with 8 bit characters

I'm using a HD44780 display with the driver in "winamp" mode. That works well
for all ASCII-characters smaller or equal than 0x7F. But when I try to
display a character that is located in range 0x80..0xFF or when I try to
display an icon something goes completely wrong:

Instead of the correct character two different ones are displayed, mainly
starting with a "A". So all special characters the HD44780 supports and all
custom icons can't be displayed.

What could be the reason for this?

Kind regards
