Bug#218509: openoffice.org: Impress causes locked screen (focus off?) in full-screen mode

Package: openoffice.org
Version: 1.1.0-1
Severity: important

When I run the openoffice impress application under KDE 3.1 in sid,
the fullscreen slide show mode initially seems to work.  However, if
the slide show rests long enough (e.g. 1 min) on one slide, it is no
longer possible to affect the application using any input events
(mouse, keyboard).  That is, one is stuck at that slide and can't go
forward or backward in the presentation, and it is not possible to
leave slide show mode.

The mouse pointer still follows mouse movements, so I assume that the
X server has not crashed.  Rather, it is as if focus has been lost so
that the application no longer receives any input events.  It *is*
possible to ctrl+alt+F<n> to the console.

I'm not aware of any other aspect of my system which is not working
with regard to input focus, and my KDE setup is pretty basic with no
strange apps running in the background and potentially influencing
input focus (although I do use the hotkeys package for supporting the
multimedia buttons on my laptop).

Unfortunately, this bug makes it impossible to use impress in my
presentations.  I'd very much like to have an alternative to Microsoft
