have noticed this myself (Duron 1.1ghz system) and would very much like to see
it resolved. (Worked fine on previous install of RH 7.2). I have a rather
extensive directory of backdrop images I like to select for certain
screensavers, and was quite perturbed to see that this feature had broken in the
most recent release. 

I'll be happy to provide gdb traces and whatnot if anyone would care to post how
they would prefer I do so.

As a test I tried xscreensaver-4.06-4 from rawhide and that one works fine with
my RH8.0 system - might be worth a try too.
