From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
If your're slow (and unlucky) the password dialog can timeout in the middle
of typing a password.
Timer should be reset if the user is typing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. lock screen
2. type password slowly

Actual Results:  If the timeout reaches zero before you finish typing your password, the dialog will go away. Then you must type the password again from beginning.

Expected Results:  xscreensaver should let me type my password to the end.

I think this bug is already fixed in the version 4.22.

In the version 4.22, driver/lock.c is changed so that each time a key
is pressed 10 percent of the whole time allowed to type a password is added
to the remaining time (pw->ratio) .

I saw that this bug remains in the rpm version 4.21-4, but doesn't seem
to remain in the version 4.22-16.
