Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 124633
gnome screensaver starts at random
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:43 EST
Description of problem:
I set the gnome screensaver so it blanks the display after a certain
time. The problem is that once in a while, the display goes blank (for
a faction of a second) while I'm working (definitely not after the 10
minute timeout). When I disable the screensaver, this doesn't happen.
This didn't happen with FC1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Are you using ntp?
I'm using NTP. However, this only seems to happen with the default
kernel (hasn't happened yet with either 2.6.6 or 2.6.5-mm6)
Do you see any messages about the time jumping abnormally?
(in syslog, or wherever)
Nothing shows up in /var/log/messages.
Actually, it happened again with a different kernel and dmesg showed
nothing and the clock was fine.

reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
