When the user locked the screen and the X Window System did not support the X Resize, Rotate (XRandR) or XF86VM gamma fade extensions, then the gnome-screensaver utility terminated with a segmentation fault. Now, additional checks are made before calling the fade_setup() function, which fixes the problem.
