Minor problem with gPhotoShow ScreenSaver and mouse

Hi,
I'm using the free version of the gPhotoShow screensaver, v1.6.3 with Displayfusion v3.2.0.106, Beta 6.

I noticed that when Displayfusion is running, the only way I can exit the screensaver is to use a key-press. Mouse move and mouse click don't have any effect, even though they're enabled.

If I exit Displayfusion and enable gPhotoshow with the Windows 7 screen saver settings, mouse action can exit the screen saver.

Just to make sure, I tried gPhotoshow on another PC with one monitor that's not running Displayfusion at all. I got the same behavior with gPhotoshow, that is I was able to exit the screensaver using mouse action (click or move).

So it seems that the screen saver has a problem with mouse action only when it's being managed by DisplayFusion.

Has anyone else using this screen saver noticed this behavior?

Thanks for your time,
Big Al Mintaka

Unfortunately the DisplayFusion screen saver process is unable to capture mouse movements while the screensaver is running. As a result, the only option it to press a keyboard key to exit the screen saver. Some screensavers will allow you to click the mouse to exit, but not gPhotoShow apparently. Sorry for the inconvenience, I hope you can live with this. :)
