this behaviour is known and a little bit on purpose in LCDproc 0.5.3. It
happens if you run LCDd on large displays with quickly changing screens
of lcdproc (like the 'G' screen). This happening on 20x4 is very rare.

LCDd's input processing has been improved since 0.5.3, so you may try
the latest version from CVS. If you need to stick to 0.5.3 you may try
to set 'delay' option in lcdproc.conf (NOT in LCDd.conf).
