Description of problem:

Gnome-screensaver locks screen on date change

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Just change time in clock applet.(I have set + 1 hour),
don't move the mouse.
Actual results:
Screen is locked by gnome-screensaver.

Expected results:
Time must be changed without affecting gnome-screensaver

This one is funny... :)

gnome-screensaver extensively uses time(2) to calculate the elapsed time.
Personally I would have expected the usage of GTimer or something similar.

As this is non-trivial I think it should be filed in GNOME Bugzilla.
Comment 2 Frank Arnold 2006-03-26 15:45:20 EST
Just noticed that this bug was already reported to RH Bugzilla. Sorry for the
spam. I will file a bug in GNOME Bugzilla and post a link to bug 181882.
