Actual Results: Program crashes without error.
Expected Results: Change should have been activated.

ltrace with x error that shows on ltrace
Doesn't happen for me on FC4 x86; can you compile with -g and run xscreensaver-demo under gdb to
give me a backtrace with symbol names? Also, attach your .xscreensaver file.

my .xscreensaver file
I am not ultra familiar with SPEC files and such, so it will take me a bit to
figure out how to get the -g option in. However, this is rawhide not FC4.
I will try to get this to you this weekend.

Don't use iterator that may not be valid
Above is a patch that I'm building into rawhide now. I think it should solve
