It looks like myth resets the screensaver after executing a menu item.
 I added this:

Index: mythcontext.cpp
--- mythcontext.cpp     (revision 16479)
+++ mythcontext.cpp     (working copy)
@@ -3727,6 +3727,7 @@

 void MythContext::ResetScreensaver(void)
+    VERBOSE(VB_IMPORTANT, "Reset screen saver");
             new ScreenSaverEvent(ScreenSaverEvent::ssetReset));

Which seems to fire as I move through menu items.  That's my guess.
