Description Chris Evans 1999-05-06 21:38:06 UTC
This is a lame bug. I apologise in advance :-)

Here goes. I assert that when I lock my screen with the
"Lock Screen" menu option of GNOME, this means I don't want
people looking at the contents of my screen.

However some of the screensavers work by slowly distorting
the existing contents of the screen so privacy can be
breached.

If I have not been clear _please_ drop me a note

if that's a problem, then don't pick a random screensaver. :)

OK, ok, I said it was a lame bug :-)
