Thanks for the followup, that's good news that Jonathan may be working on this at some point.

Response from KI6ZUM -

We are hearing a few people seeing this including people who are just using displays they have purchased on their own. The best we can guess at the moment is that the Nextion code in mmdvmhost is not checking the return code from the display so it is just assuming that any information sent to the display arrives correctly. It seems like when too much info is sent to the display in a row, the display just throws some of it away. There are a couple of people working on it at the moment.

When I met with Jonathan a couple of weeks ago. he agreed that the whole OLED/Nextion code needs to be rewritten to deal with a whole bunch of problems.
Wow, I can't believe what I just read. Shaking my head.

Does KI6ZUM have an account on here at all?
