Description Kyrre Ness Sjøbæk 2005-03-04 17:28:16 EST
Description of problem:
After some apps have used "fullscreen mode" (mplayer, ooimpress), xscreensaver
starts to black out after about 1 minute - 30 secounds of inactivity. Very annoying!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens in fc3 and fc2

How reproducible:
Sometimes, but not always.
It does not seem like "disable screensaver" option has any effect, but i migth
be wrong.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Display a presentation full-screen in impress, run a movie in full-screen etc.
2. Use the computer for something else
3. Screen blanks after very short period of time
Actual results:
Blank to early (my timer is set to 10 minutes)

Expected results:
Not blank yet

Additional info:

When i do a logout/in, it is reset back to normal

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!
