Description JR 2010-08-01 17:25:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Gnome-screensaver continues to activate no matter if activity occurs once the dimming process begins.  Previously one could move the mouse as the screen started to dim and the screensaver wouldn't activate.  Noticed using the Fedora bubbles screensaver

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

How reproducible:
90+% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Leave the system idle until screen starts to dim
2. Move the mouse or press a key to abort screensaver activity
Actual results:
Sometimes, the screensaver goes ahead and locks the screen

Expected results:
Screensaver aborts

Confirmed. Happens in 100% cases for me, with pure blank screensaver.
