All I can do is agree that `screenblank' is a total disaster.  Unfortunate,
since many years ago, circa 1.4, it worked very well.

Subject: problem with "screenblank"

I never got a reply (probably posted to wrong list), and never filed a
pr because I thought it could be related to my unusual hardware.  May I
ask if you wouldn't mind filing one since I guess you have a more
standard computer than the one I tried on?  Thanks.
