Did you check if user activity detection worked with BOINC 5.10.27-1 and the
kernel you had installed before? I'm not sure that this has anything to do
with this newer kernel version.
I can reproduce this with BOINC 5.10.27-1 (which is the current version in
unstable) but not with BOINC 5.10.8-2 (which is the current version in
testing) without changing the kernel, therefore this bug must have been
introduced somewhere between 5.10.8 and 5.10.27 and I guess this changeset is
the culprit: http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/changeset/13948
I'll now try to debug and to fix this.
