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.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose the science screensaver
2. Make sure the "hide background" check box isn't checked.
Initially the display is all grey.
The whirl shows the desktop in it's trail.
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.
thanks, we'll continue to track this upstream.
