Continuous Mouse Movement In the Second Screen Can not stop Screensaver from starting.

Bug Description

I am using 7.04 x86_64. I edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf so that I can use two monitors. I moved my mouse pointer into the second screen, I started Firefox in the second screen then I only use mouse to browse internet. I found that though my mouse pointer had never stopped moving, the screensaver would start.(I setted the screensaver to start if in 1 minute, I did not move the mouse). If I move mouse pointer into the Main Screen, Then the screensaver would stop.

I witnessed this issue yesterday at a conference when someone was giving a presentation and their screen faded out.

This happened on an IBM thinkpad with a second screen running on the VGA.

I will point the person that this was happening to to tihs bug.
