Few weeks ago after updating vlc player from 1.0.5 to 1.1.4 (now) it stopped disabling screen saver and while watching movies (DVD or file) I have to hit a key or mouse every few minutes because the screen saver goes on.
I had no such problem before. It happen after updating and I'd like to add that I have checked the box 'Disable screen saver' in vlc settings.
I run on OpenSuse 11.2, KDE 4.3.5, VLC 1.1.4, kernel Linux 220.127.116.11-0.2-desktop x86_64
