mplayer doesn't turn off screensaver while playing because of a typo

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mplayer

I'm using Ubuntu Gutsy. There's a typo in the mplayer.conf, supplied with the mplayer package. The result is that mplayer doesn't turn off screensaver or screen blanking while playing.

I found out because mplayer complained that it can't recognize "stopxscreensaver" option.

Here's a "patch" that fixes the problem:
