Description of problem:
in the earlier beta's (limbo 1 and 2) the screen presented to the the user on
mouse movement after locking the Gnome screen, had an image of shadowman instead
of the unappealing(my oppinion) X flame logo...
Please put back the shadowman or even something new, but loose the X flame
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Lock the Gnome session
2.Move the mouse
Actual Results: The unlock screen is shown with an ugly logo
Expected Results: The logo should not be ugly
We decided to stay with the upstream unlock dialog.
I'm sorry to hear that... IMO it was a very good choice to replace it with the
shadowman logo. The unlock image as you say, is just not very nice, and will be
something like a crack in the fine polish of the next red hat release...
The unlock dialog is what non-linux users will notice at first if they want to
see my linux desktop, and that will leave them with a yucky feel of linux.
Your decision, i'm just sorry :-(
in Red Hat 8.0 RC2 - the unlock x window is completely back to its old ugly
self... non-gnome2 style...
I sincerely hope this is a mistake - I was just getting used to living with the
default unlock image - now i really don't want to learn to live with this as well
It's intentional; the gtk2 unlock dialog had some bugs that we couldn't fix in
time, so it was disabled.

Will the gtk2 dialog replace the xscreensaver default dialog once the
bugs are fixed? Is there a bug ticket open for the gtk2 dialog? If
not, this should be reopened to track this issue.

So will it ever be updated? That was like 2 years ago.
one more year passed and the unlock window ugly look is still not fixed. It's a
