fwiw, this is an issue I'm aware of and tried to fix before 0.22 went
out. When using the VDPAU overlay, the colorkey needs to be redrawn
once overwritten by another app, window etc. In the screensaver case I
couldn't find any event that was being posted to tell mythfrontend
that the screensaver had de-activated and hence a re-draw was needed.
I'll have another look - though any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks and regards
