Description of problem:

After upgrade to the latest version of  gnome-screensaver package
gnome-screensaver-2.25.1-2.fc11.x86_64 I've noticed that
my Xorg is spinning on one CPU - actually it was note easily detecable that the buggy program is screensaver - but after a while I've found it.

It seems that Xorg loops here:

PU: Core 2, speed 2201 MHz (estimated)
Counted CPU_CLK_UNHALTED events (Clock cycles when not halted) with a unit mask of 0x00 (Unhalted core cycl
es) count 100000
samples  %        image name               app name                 symbol name
  1         0.1451  libfb.so                 Xorg          fbCreateGC
  688      99.8549  intel_drv.so             Xorg          _fini
4819     29.6062  Xorg                     Xorg         dixLookupPrivate
  4819     100.000  Xorg                     Xorg      dixLookupPrivate [self]
1494      9.1786  intel_drv.so             Xorg           I830BlockHandler
  1494     100.000  intel_drv.so             Xorg         I830BlockHandler [self]

As a fix I've renamed binary to avoid starting of screensaver in any case.

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

How reproducible:
start gnome-session  with gnome-screensaver
