To clarify:
1. Menu: Lock screen - shows blank password protected screen.
2. Right click on desktop - locks screen but doesn't display screensaver.
3. Right click on desktop and run "Configure destp, under screensaver
- test screensaver functionality works.

Screensaver works as expected in scenario 3 only.

To further clarify:
I am running the updated i810_drv.o due to problems with Intel video 
This bug seems to happen with all screensavers.

I changed to a very plain screensaver and it seems to work as 
expected. Perhaps this is a problem with the device driver and 3gl
