From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
Dell 1400 PowerEdge.  Xscreensaver never comes on.  Tried every one that I 
could use the configure button for.  The test portion of xscreensaver 
always will work.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Screen Saver, (ie 3dClock)
2. Check Settings window
3. Preview screeen saver
4. Select 5 minutes or more
5. Wait, nothing happens,
6. Power save screen comes on in 20 minutes


Actual Results:  Never works!!

Expected Results:  Screeen saver should kick in.  Password should be asked 
for to unlock screen to protect running programs from interference so the 
admin can walk away on ocassion.

Are you running as root?
Comment 2 Wes Kaufmann 2001-09-26 17:10:11 EDT
Yes, I'm running as root.

FYI, Had the same problem when 7.0 was loaded.
