Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Screen remains unlocked
Expected Results: Screen becomes locked
What version of control-center do you have installed?
Did you connect as root ?
If so, this is a normal behaviour of xscreensaver...

connected as root.
A workaround :
So you can go to a normal console, connect and launch vlock -a.
Indeed, I connected as root. vlocks helped. Thanks a lot.
