Description of problem:
If the settings for Xscreensaver are changed in the gnome settings panel,
they are ignored and are not written out to a configuration file for future
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up the Xscreensaver control panel
2. Change the settings to start after five minutes or 1 minute or whatever.
3. Hit apply, then close.
Actual Results: Nothing happens. Xscreensaver still starts after the
default value of twenty minutes.
Expected Results: The time to activate the screensaver should have been
changed from the default value of 20 to 5 minutes.
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
Was this fixed in final 7.2?
It works for me with the final release. It looks like it got fixed between
Roswell 1 and 2.
Thanks, sounds good.
