Some screensavers don't run

Description of problem:
I have just installed FC 4. I have preferences to set to run almost any screen
saver in the installation when the station is idle for two minutes, and a new
screen saver is selected at random on each launch, and every ten minutes
In the few days FC 4 has been running, quite a number of times I enter the room
and see the screen black, with yellow text error message stating that "screen
saver (thus-and-so) aborted abnormally" or some such wording.
I don't know which all ones don't run (yet) and which ones do; since there are
so many failures I suspect the problem is really in the launcher, not the
individual screen saver routines. (All of them worked fine with FC 3 before
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I'd have to manually attempt to launch each screen saver routine to see which
ones work and which ones don't.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
I have upgraded to Fedora Core 5 and the problem no longer manifests itself.
