After leaving computer idle (reading a long web page) the screen

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1) killall xscreensaver
2) run xscreensaver in an xterm
3) click settings
4) click "preview" and wiggle he mouse immidiately
   (might take a few attempts)
5) if 4) doesn't work....keep hammering the preview button
   so it goes in and out of the screensaver very quickly
   over and over.

Additional info:
The gfx card/driver I'm using is a geforce 2GTS with the
default redhat supplied nv driver

Hi Adrian,

I assume this problem was fixed a long time ago.  I can't reproduce it
with a recent version of xscreensaver.  If you still experience
problems, feel free to reopen this bug report.
