Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-11-15 10:53:28 EST
gnome-screensaver doesn't seem to work too well in an Xnest window.

for instance, run gdmflexiserver -n, log in and click to System -> Lock Screen.
 It won't lock, but it will hold a keyboard grab and screw up the session.

This was broken and fixed a few times during the early stages.  This should work
for good in 2.13.91 and later.
