Proximity sensor always active - screen turns off randomly?

As the bug report says, the issue is a bit more complex than that. The sensor should be activated during a phone call, but not if using a headset or speaker phone. So only the call app knows when the sensor should be activated -> phosh needs to implement a signal of some sort which allows the call app to activate the sensor, and the call app needs to be made to send such a signal.

For those of us not using the phone for phonecalls, the sensor can apparently be set to be always disabled: (I haven't had time to try it myself.)

Edit: Seems to work. Note that this most likely also disabled the ambient light sensor.
