If someone can confirm that GNOME screensaver does not activate during 
playback after this change, I'd be happy to "backport" it to 
0.24-fixes.  Note that the patch should apply to 0.24-fixes, too, so if 
you compile MythTV yourself and are using 0.24-fixes, you can test it 
without upgrading to unstable/development code.
