gnome-screensaver lock doesn't work with unredirect_fullscreen_windows enabled
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
If the option to unredirect fullscreen windows
(/apps/compiz/general/screen0/options/unredirect_fullscreen_windows) is enabled
then the gnome-screensaver lock dialog is not visible and you are allowed to
view windows underneath by pressing alt-tab.
unredirect_fullscreen_windows cannot possibly work on the Fedora version of
compiz since we use the a feature of Composite called an "Overlay Window". This
window would cover any unredirected fullscreen windows and cause all sorts of
So WONTFIX'ing this bug.
