Description rene reitsma 2010-09-01 18:59:57 EDT
Description of problem: When the screensaver comes on and gradually dims/darkens the screen (takes about five seconds), mouse events that occur during this dimming/darkening phase do not stop the screen saver. Have to wait until the screen saver image is entirely loaded before mouse events kill the screensaver.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-screensaver 2.30.0

How reproducible: Always. I reported this problem in FC11 and it got solved. Seems to be back now in FC13

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Leave machine alone and wait until screensaver kicks in
2. While the screen is darkening, move mouse back and forth
3. Screensaver will not halt 
Actual results:

Expected results:

I'm also experiencing this, and it's very annoying... Is there anything I can do to help?
