A suitable candidate should be recruited on the basis of his/her credentials as well as merit and if the candidate is fit for the said position there should not be any issues. This is in theory. But in practice it depends on the individual hiring manager, culture, etc. As an individual, all you can do is be positive.
To add to what Arulk said,
You will have to think positive. Prepare a nice resume and add whatever you contributed to opensource projects, what technologies you know etc. If you apply somewhere and do not get chance for the interview, it may be because of recession may not be because of employment gap. If for some employer, this gap matters, you forget them and try for other employers which will consider you. Think positive and move ahead.

Open source projects are as technically demanding as real paid projects, so simply state you participated in open source projects to keep your skills up to date, it should be enough if the technical interview confirms it.
