Description of problem:
The barcode screensaver includes the following terms, which could be
considered inappropriate to show up on a screen in many circumstances:
Note I'm not trying to be a moral cop, but this could get unsuspecting
folks into trouble at their place of business. My suggestion is to
either remove the offending words altogether, or add a '-o' option
that enables them, and leave that option out of the screensaver by
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the barcode screensaver
3. Eventually you'll see some of these terms.
Or, you can run 'strings /usr/X11R6/lib/xscreensaver/barcode' if you
want to scan through a list of all the words, like I did.
Thanks for spotting this. Should be fixed in rawhide soon.
