I too have the screensaver freeze up on (null).
I'm running Gnome.  /sbin/lspci says I have a
Millennium G400 with 16MB.  Let me know if you want me
to ty an experiemnts.  (I disabled the screensaver,
and haven't noticed any other serious problems.)
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-11-10 15:19:22 EST

This bug is quite old now.  Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it.  If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of xscreensaver, feel free to reopen.
