Thanks for digging into this further, however I disagree with that
assessment.  I can reproduce the same issue with xscreensaver on xfce,
and it's probably true for any desktop/screensaver/power-management
combo out there.  So, it's not just one misbehaving application that
could somehow be fixed.  It is chrome itself that isn't making the
right calls to tell that stuff to get out of the way.

Would you mind providing a link to the bug report or mailing list that
you had that discussion on?

Best wishes,
