Would you mind trying the attached patch with the downloaded nightly snapshot? I cannot test this myself as I am using a non-Linux OS.
BTW: This means no Linux user has tried a nightly snapshot for 3 months or they don't have the linux/i2c-dev.h file!

This might be a drawback of the way LCDd works. It is single threaded and does reading from the client, input processing, and rendering one after another. As updating the screen may take a while, you have to press the key longer than that to be recognized.

Within scripts/debian there is a version of the debian files needed to create a package. I synced these with the official ones for 0.5.3 release. But as we lack somebody who builds snapshot debian packages, I don't know if it works today or is in sync with the official package files.
