This seems to be fixed in latest f10 beta. I reinstalled from scratch,
reset my screensaver settings once again to always on, and let
packagekit download the gazillion updates already out there for
rawhide, and when I came back much later, the screen was still visible.

Thanks, I'll consider it fixed then.
