Hello List,

I've noticed some strange oddity in the screenblank functions since a while.
I'm tracking current (4.99.6) and I'm using icewm as a window manager
and an USB Mouse.
In general everything works fine, but if I'm not using the keyboard
for 10 minutes but the mouse in X, the screen blanks and I can only
bring it back by pressing any key on the keyboard.
The mouse movements aren't recognized at all. This is somehow bad,
when reading articles or working mainly with a mouse.

Any ideas what could be the reason ?
