Public bug reported:
Binary package hint: libxine1
Not really sure if this is xine or xine-ffmpeg, but since it seems to
have to do with DPMS I think probably the core lib.
Using kde with either amarok or kaffeine (xine in common) will cause a
kdesktop crash some time after DPMS has turned off the screen.
I have not been able to reproduce this with a perfect regularity, but 2
things are required, dpms and xine libs.
I assume it has something to do with xine's ability/feature to stop the
screensaver while playing video, it must be doing something odd when it
finds dpms running.
I haven't had any luck debugging it any better, as when I run amarok or
kaffeine in gdb or strace it doesn't happen any more, and my debugging C
skills stop at dabbling.
In kde kdesktop is the screensaver, so if xine does soemthing funky to
it, that would explain my kdesktop crash.
