mplayer cannot stop xscreensaver

I have mplayer on fedora 5 but somehow during the playback, mplayer can not stop Xscreensaver even when i choose the option "stop xscreensaver".
Any suggestion is welcome

Maybe this is too complicated, but what I would do in this situation is to change the launcher for mplayer to stop the xscreensaver daemon first, then restart it upon exit. Of course this implies that you would always be starting mplayer from the same launcher (menu item, panel shortcut, whatever).
