Description of problem:
I am able to set the Lock screen After time to less than that of
screen saver time which seems to be invalid. The screen should not
allow me to set the lock screen time to less than screen saver time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp #1 SMP Thu Jul 1 08:36:21 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open shell and type screensaver-properties-capplet
2. select a only one screen saver and set the blank after time to 2
minutes and cycle after to 2 minutes
3.check the  lock screen after check box and choose 1 minute there and
close the window

Actual Results:  the screen saver will start after two minutes but the
screen saver lock does not work

Expected Results:  Either the lock screen after minutes should not be
less than screen saver time or the screen saver should lock the screen
after the screen saver starts

That's not how it works.  From the manual:

       Lock Screen
           When this is checked, the screen will be locked when it activates.

       Lock Screen After
           This  controls  the length of the ''grace period'' between when the
           screensaver activates, and when the  screen  becomes  locked.   For
           example,  if this is 5 minutes, and Blank After is 10 minutes, then
           after 10 minutes, the  screen  would  blank.   If  there  was  user
           activity  at  12 minutes, no password would be required to un-blank
           the screen.  But, if there was user activity at 15 minutes or later
           (that  is, Lock Screen After minutes after activation) then a pass-
           word would be required.  The default is 0, meaning that if  locking
           is  enabled, then a password will be required as soon as the screen

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
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.
