Doesn't sound good.

Have you read about Rocklatin?

An exampel of redefining patterns look like this:

  unsigned char pattern[]={ 0x0a, 0x00, 0x00, 0x0c,
                            0x04, 0x04, 0x0e};
  unsigned char handle;
  lcd_define_pattern(handle, pattern);
  lcd_putc(x, y, handle);

I can't see in you code that you use lcd_get_locked_pattern() and that should
be your problem. You shall alloc your four patterns and remember their handles
and use those handles dynamic. When you exit you shall unlock the handles.

The nice part with Rocklatin is that you can define many patterns, as long as
you only use 4/8 own-defined-chars at the time. If you use more than 4 chars
at the same time you shall check that you don't run on an old-lcd player.
