Description Thomas Cameron 2007-09-27 02:08:09 EDT
Description of problem:
I installed xscreensaver-extras-5.03-1.fc6.1 and set my laptop up to do random
screensavers.  After running overnight, I found my laptop locked up and

I ran each screen saver on my laptop to determine which ones were causing
problems, and I found that these four will peg the CPU at 100% and render my
machine unresponsive:


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

How reproducible:
Run the above screensaver

Actual results:
Laptop locks up - it is unresponsive from the keyboard but the mouse still works.

Expected results:
No lockup.

Additional info:
This is a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 with Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML
Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Note that I installed the xscreensaver packages from FC6 on RHEL 5, but I tested
with FC6 as well and it does the same thing there.

Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know

will have to close this bug as CANTFIX.
