[MPlayer-users] xscreensaver not re-initialising

This appears to be a 'feature':

When 'stop xscreensaver' is enabled in gmplayer (from the gui, anyway),
whenever gmplayer is started it stops xscreensaver.

Problem: xscreensaver is never started again.

It seems that gmplayer kills the daemon.
Wouldn't it be better to run 'xscreensaver-command -deactivate' or
something similar?
