Scott Howard ,
Since update gnome-power-manager (2.27.91-0ubuntu1) to 2.27.92-0ubuntu1
I havent seen the blanking *but* , i still [very often] get the notification area icon with a tooltip that says "Session active, not inhibited, screen idle.
If you can see this text, your display server is broken and you should notify you distributer.
Please see http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2009/08/17/gnome-power-manager-and-blanking-removal-of-bodges/ for more information."

But i had blanking with *.91 so either the patch in *.91 didnt fix this problem or it was fixed by these xorg updates[from xorg edgers ppa.] , which happened the same day as update *.92...

Regarding the icon..... notification area icon disappears in a few minutes after using the system
So , if this blanking issue is fixed , why is gpm displaying the icon? is it still broken or ... ?
