Description Philip Ashmore 2008-07-14 15:11:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008061712 Fedora/3.0-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0

Description of problem:
I'm in KDE 4.
I choose the science screen saver.
I see a preview on the little monitor in the dialog.
the preview seems to start out all grey and as the whirl goes around, the desktop shows through.
If I move the preview monitor off-screen and back, it's all grey and the whirl continues showing the desktop in it's trail.
I click on the "test" button.
The same thing happens.
I click the ok button and lock the screen.
Same thing.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose the science screensaver
2. Make sure the "hide background" check box isn't checked.

Actual Results:
Initially the display is all grey.
The whirl shows the desktop in it's trail.

Expected Results:
The desktop should be displayed with the whirl distorting it.

I was able to reproduce this on my F9 system.  I also checked upstream and could
find no matching bug.  Please file a report at http://bugs.kde.org and then add
upstream info to this report.  We will monitor upstream for resolution.
