Tested previous xorg-x11-server releases. This regression happened between 1.6.1.901-4 and 1.6.99-2  everything else (barring evdev) the same.
radeon here as well, latest rawhide.

to reproduce 
gnome-screensaver-command -a

I'll move it to xorg-x11-server
Comment 3 Yanko Kaneti 2009-06-28 10:28:44 EDT
Specifically its caused by the fading. The same effect is achieved by running test-fade from the gnome-screensaver sources.
Comment 4 Adam Jackson 2009-06-29 17:31:11 EDT
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 'xgamma -gamma 1.0' fixes this, in which case it's a gnome-screensaver bug, not an X bug.
Comment 5 Yanko Kaneti 2009-06-29 18:04:45 EDT
Yes it does, this to fix after the screwup. Thanks
$ xgamma -gamma 1.0
-> Red  0.100, Green  0.100, Blue  0.100
<- Red  1.000, Green  1.000, Blue  1.000

Similar, but probably different bug is bug 508397.

Comment 10 Steve 2009-07-03 02:30:04 EDT
The problem is not fixed in gnome-screensaver-2.27.0-2.fc12.i586.
Comment 11 Aioanei Rares 2009-07-21 02:47:08 EDT
It's not a driver issue, I guess, since I have Nvidia card and I encounter the same behaviour.
Comment 12 Adam Jackson 2009-08-18 15:49:36 EDT
Should be fixed in 2.27.0-9.  Please test and reopen if not.
