Description of problem:
I have my screensaver set to start after 2 minutes, with a fading
effect of 3 secs. Even if I move the mouse every 30 seconds or so, the
screensaver will eventually start. It's as if it recognize mouse
movements as idle time.
My mouse is a Logitech MX-700 (usb).
I'm not sure if this bug was in Red Hat 8, but I've seen this bug in
Red Hat 9 AND I'm seeing it in Fedora Core 1, so it's not a new bug.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set your screensaver to start after, say, 1 minute
2. Start moving your mouse, but don't click on buttons
Actual Results: The screensaver starts even though it shouldn't
because of the mouse usage.
Expected Results: The screensaver should not start until 1 minute of
*completely idle* time.
