Comment 3 for bug 120896

This is a bug in the upstream flashplayer, which doesn't inhibit gnome-screensaver while it's running.

I've developed a patch that would would work around it to some extent. For want of somewhere better to put it, I've proposed merging into Ubufox:

The patch is far from perfect, and I'm not that sure of my merging etiquette, so please e-mail me if you have suggestions. I'm not a maintainer of any related software, so please don't hassle (for example) the Ubufox guy(s) about this.
