Package: caffeine
Version: 2.9.4-1
Severity: normal

( Disclaimer: This is my first time using reportbug so I'm sorry for any 
beginners mistakes. )

Caffeine hasn't been inhibiting xscreensaver since I first set up this laptop. 

When running manually I get logs like

"matschi@errors:~$ caffeine
  INFO:root:caffeine is inhibiting desktop idleness
  Protocol error: bad 3 (Window); Sequence Number 11
   Opcode (20, 0) = GetProperty
   Bad resource 0 (0x0)
   at -e line 15.
INFO:root:caffeine is no longer inhibiting desktop idleness"

This happens in single as well as multi screen mode. 

I found a similar bug at and also added my report there:

My xscreensaver is v 5.36-1, 
   * blank only
   * power management enabled
   * quick power off in Blank Only Mode

As DE I use xfce4 
   * display power management disabled in xfce4-powermanager
   xfce4 pkg list :

Thanks for your effort and time,
