I never thought about the possibility that the screensaver could be the
culprit. The problem was occurring when using the photo slideshow
screensaver in KDE. I changed the screensaver to pyro, started xmms
playing, waited for the screen to blank out, and guess what? Tapping a
key woke it right up!

This largely solves my problem. When I have more time I probably will
experiment with your other suggestions to see if I can find a workable
way to use the slideshow screensaver and xmms.

Thank you!
