Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

Whilst watching the BBC iPlayer in full screen, I was interrupted by my screen saver because I hadn't moved the mouse or touched the keyboard for over 5 minutes.. This behavior is entirely normal, and should not bring up the screen saver. So, there should be a way of gnome-screensaver detecting whether you are using a full screen flash player, and disable the screen saver when this is the case. This works whatever the time frame for screen saver activation.
