I have debian etch and 2.6.22 kernel from:

 deb etch-backports main non-free contrib

and I don't have this problem. It should mean that it's not a kernel
problem but rather Xorg problem. Maybe we should find in the mailing
list and IRC history when people noticed this problem for the first time.
Then people affected can look into  /var/log/aptitude and look at
what was upgraded at this point in time or slightly earlier. And
finally we could look into package history on debian site, like this
one, to see when a new .deb version was added:

maybe that would allow to find the offending upgrade.... Well it
still requires some detective skills ;)

my wife has the opposite problem on clean debian etch - LCD is
turning off after 5 minutes (the dpms setting) while watching
movies with mplayer ;-) But I don't have this problem on my PC (and
screens are properly turning off after 5 minutes). That's just weird.
