Is the lower 'L' limit screw allowing the rear derailleur to fully engage the largest cog ? If not, that can cause it to shift to the next gear.
A slipping shifter will often slip in other gears, not just the lowest that you mention.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.
