strange, i'm not able to reproduce this problem in FC4 release.
could you please give more infos about your settings?
I need a testcase to reproduce it. Thanks
I changed settings in the Control Panel for the Screen Saver (switched to a
different screen saver) and have since not been able to reproduce the problem.
Consider it operator error.
