It's been a while since I tested LCDProc with the CFontzPacket driver,
but I do remember experiencing what sounds like what you are describing.
I can definitely check it when I get back to my house this evening.
What version would you like me to test against? CVS Head or 0.5.2?

OK. Fair enough. Since there's been some issue raised in the 2006
message with LCD module limitations and the three uses of "solid
block", should it be selectable within LCDd.conf? Since some hardware
will have problems with the 'seven line' hbar and some will not (not
to mention those modules with character cell spacing on the glass vs
those that can do "seamless" bars), it doesn't seem viable to force
drivers into one height versus another. As a driver
writer/maintainer, if the recommendation is to support both and check
LCDd.conf, I don't see that as too difficult to support, but my own
preference is for full-height bars.
