wow, Jussi, you have put in great effort trying to fix this!
So I was just having this problem on Ubuntu 14.04.1LTS with boinc 7.2.42 and was disappointed to see how it doesn't look like this issue has been resolved. But, I think I just found a fix, and it'll need to bake a little longer to see if it really works.
Basically, I installed xprintidle and restarted the boinc mgr and boinc client. Now, with it set to require 1 minute idling, it seems like it's working.

Install xprintidle:
sudo apt-get install xprintidle
Restart the boincmgr and boinc-client:
sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client stop
sudo /etc/init.d/boinc-client start
