Bug Description

When playing continous audio (i.e. a radio station in Rhythmbox), the display never shuts off. This should not keep the display on, and the display should shut off when it normally does

It appears as though this is a Rhythmbox bug, as playing audio with a different media player (in my case, mplayer) does not keep the screen on.

It appears that the reason that the screen is staying on is that Rhythmbox is sending a InhibitorOn signal to org.gnome.SessionManager over dbus, which keeps the screen on, until the audio is finished playing. This appears in the power-manager plugin, located at /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/power-manager
