Description Alexandre Oliva 2006-10-28 14:46:58 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to gnome-screensaver-2.17.1-1.fc7.x86_64.rpm, when the screen
saver kicks in and locks the screen, I can't get out of it any more.  Even
though it displays the window in which the password prompt should be, the actual
box in which the password is to be entered is not there, and entering the
password nevertheless has no effect.

Downgrading to gnome-screensaver-2.16.0-7.fc6 and then killing the password
prompt process fixes it.
