This bug has been copied from bug #614063 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.6 z-stream (EUS).
Patch applied to gnome-screensaver-2.16.1-8.el5_6.3.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Previously, using the "Pictures folder" screen saver with an empty Pictures directory could cause the gnome-screensaver program to terminate unexpectedly. This update applies an upstream patch that resolves this issue, and an empty Pictures directory no longer causes the "Pictures folder" screen saver to crash.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
