The ScreenSaverController class watches app launching and quitting and
will set fEnabled to false when the screen_blanker quits. It works
believe me :)

OK I wasn't sure.

That was something Rene suggested, so I guess so.

For some reason I seemed to get two such events, though when I got
some help from Rene he was only seeing one I think. I was testing in
VMware. But when I added a counter to ignore the first few events then
keyboard input was ignored for the first event. I can play with it
some more.

That might help too.
