Sorry for the late reply, I lost track of this issue...

Thanks for the patch.

I guess that we have 2 choices:
- ship untested code and have a possibility of breaking lcdproc for lis
- disable lis and render all lis displays useless

I think the first option is preferable: If a user complain, we'll fix the
and ask for feedback.

As your patch does not really change the implementation, I'll try the first
option on lcdproc Debian package.

All the best
