Random screen blanking -- a clue

There's been a steady trickle of complaints from different folks about their
screens going blank for a second, or two, after upgrading to F11.
I've observed this too -- it happens on one of my laptops every couple of
days, or so. I've always had the impression that, for some reason, this was
the screensaver kicking in. They way that happened always gave me that idea.
I'm now pretty sure that, sometimes, for some reason the screensaver kicks
in even though the system is not idle. I just finished typing, and began
reading something on the screen, when the screen went black about three
seconds after I stopped typing.
I did nothing, and the screen continued to stay black. After waiting about
ten seconds, I pressed the shift key, and my desktop came back.
It's the screensaver. Something's causing it to trip, when it shouldn't.
