Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 185077
screensaver locks user out in Xnest session
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:26 EST
Description of problem:
When editing a profile, leave the Xnest session idle for a few minutes and the
screensaver will run inside Xnest and ask for the password of 'sabayon-admin',
which the user does not know.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open sabayon
2. edit a profile
3. leave idle Xnest session for a while
screensaver asks for sabayon-admin password.
Suggest disabling screensaver for sabayon profile editing sessions.
Hmm, we added this to prevent it:
# Disable Xscreensaver locking
new_environ["RUNNING_UNDER_GDM"] = "yes"
Maybe gnome-screensaver doesn't support that?
Inside the Xnest session:
$ echo $RUNNING_UNDER_GDM
So apparently gnome-screensaver does not support it.
By the way, do you really like the name 'RUNNING_UNDER_GDM'?

Problem is that gnome-screensaver isn't passing the RUNNING_UNDER_GDM env
variable to gnome-screenaver dialog. Attaching a fix
Turns out this is already fixed upstream
Ray: might be nice to do an FC5 update but it's not a huge deal, so feel free to
close as fixed in rawhide
