Bug#651953: boinc-client: "user activity" doesn't mean mouse activity

Package: boinc-client

Version: 6.13.12+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

In settings I turned off "When PC is in use", but boinc tasks are still running
if I move mouse and don't type anything with kbd. It seems that this option
ignores mouse activity. This means that I need to switch to xterm (or any other
application with text inpit field) all the time and type some text there to
stop boinc client from running its tasks and using CPU.

-- Package-specific info:
-- Contents of /etc/default/boinc-client:
# This file is /etc/default/boinc-client, it is a configuration file for the
# /etc/init.d/boinc-client init script.

# Set this to 1 to enable and to 0 to disable the init script.

# Set this to 1 to enable advanced scheduling of the BOINC core client and
# all its sub-processes (reduces the impact of BOINC on the system's
# performance).

# The BOINC core client will be started with the permissions of this user.

# This is the data directory of the BOINC core client.

# This is the location of the BOINC core client, that the init script uses.
# If you do not want to use the client program provided by the boinc-client
# package, you can specify here an alternative client program.

# Here you can specify additional options to pass to the BOINC core client.
# Type 'boinc --help' or 'man boinc' for a full summary of allowed options.
