Actually it should be fairly easy to backport the "fix" for this bug to the 
5.10 branch. Only these two commits that affect client/hostinfo_unix.C need 
to be backported:

Note that the "fix" does not detect activity if the keyboard or mouse is 
connected via USB. If someone knows how to detect general user activity 
(including from USB HIDs) without the need of root privileges, please let me 
know or add your infos to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/ticket/463.
