From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010725

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
sessions.

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open up the Xscreensaver control panel
(Gnome->Programs->Settings->Desktop->Screensaver)

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.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-04 16:11:43 EST
Was this fixed in final 7.2?
Comment 3 Eric Schaffner 2002-03-04 17:55:13 EST
It works for me with the final release.  It looks like it got fixed between 
Roswell 1 and 2.
