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):

How reproducible:

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.

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-04 21:11:43 UTC
Was this fixed in final 7.2?

Comment 3 Eric Schaffner 2002-03-04 22:55:13 UTC
It works for me with the final release.  It looks like it got fixed between 
Roswell 1 and 2.

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2002-03-04 23:05:13 UTC
