I'm pretty sure this bug is fixed in newer versions of XFree86.  If you
don't want to upgrade to XFree 4.0, you can work around it by putting the
following into /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup :

xset s noblank

You may also need to put it in your xsession file (I'm not sure whether it
will still be in effect after you log in).
