ok, new question: who is actually responsible for the blanking?
with the old kernel i was able to get  a workaround with xscreensaver and  
xscreensaver-command -watch.
but now, xscreensaver never fires, and thus xscreensaver-command -watch  
never gets to execute the script i wrote.

when manually activating xscreensaver, it blanks as expected, but when  
only configuring it to trigger after 1min, screen goes white and, as said,  
xscreensaver never fires its BLANK event (and tapping the screen to  
unblank not UNBLANK).

so: who does that blanking?
