Description of problem:
I have bound a key to call "xscreensaver-command -lock" in metacity to
automagically lock my display.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. xscreensaver-command -lock
2. after the display is locked, press a key to make the login/passwd window pop
3. enter your password.

Actual Results:  My password is refused like if i entered a wrong password.

Expected Results:  xscreensaver should disappear and i should see the my gnome
desktop again.

Additional info:

I did try to retype my password 25 times slowly just to be sure but it didnt
help. If i press ctrl-alt-f1 and log in console to kill the xscreensaver, my
whole session is killed as well.
