Hey, i posted this on adafruit just now, but though i would share the love for anyone searching:

Hey,

I have quite a bit about this issue, and haven't really found an explanation or proper solution.

I am using a freeduino leonardo,and read somewhere that the LCD needs ~15ms prior to it being initialised. To fix it, i simply put a delay in the setup() function.

haven't had an issue yet.

Code:
void setup() {
    delay(20);
    lcd.begin(16, 4);
}

You have resurrected an ancient thread for this non-news.

I wonder if that is why the LCD initialization in the library starts out with a 50000 uS (50 mS) delay?  You haven't 'fixed' anything with that added delay unless you have an extremely out-of-spec display.

You should be more concerned with the improper cursor positioning on lines 3 and 4 of the 16x4 displays.
