I guess there is - I was hoping for something more automatic. I don't
see why X should treat the joystick as a second class device. Joystick
input is just as certain an indicator that there is a human using the
computer as the keyboard and mouse are - so it should take it into
account when triggering the screen saver.

It's OK - I can figure out how to reset the screensaver's timeout
in the game.
