screen goes black even with setting saying "on all the time"

Description of problem:
In System > Preferences > Look & Feel > Screensaver (a gnome session),
I have idle time set to 2 hours,
I have unchecked Activate Screensaver and Lock screen
In Power Management I have
Put computer to sleep set to never
Put display to sleep set to never
Nevertheless, I start a long yum update, come back in about 15 minutes, and
find the screen has blanked and I have to wiggle the mouse for a minute
or so to get a picture back and see how far the update has gotten.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time I leave it alone for a while
Steps to Reproduce:
leave display active
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.
