Description Simo Sorce 2012-04-25 16:39:42 EDT
In 6.2 you can press a key when you see the screen starting fading for an impending screenlock.
With the beta packages (1.10.6-1.el6.i686) this doesn't work, and you are left watching a quite slow fade until you are brought to a screensaver unlock screen.

The cause might be the fix for rhbz#748704

I can remember that I saw this behavior as well, but not any more right now. Just FYI.
Comment 4 Adam Jackson 2012-04-26 10:33:50 EDT
Simo tested a patch for me, and it appears to have worked.  Writing this down so I don't forget:

This is indeed caused by:

* Mon Mar 19 2012 Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> 1.10.4-14
- xserver-1.10.4-sync-revert.patch: Revert an edge-case change in IDLETIME
  that appears to be more wrong than right. (#748704)

That patch reverts two hunks from Xext/sync.c.  Those hunks would be correct, if they swapped places.

I don't believe this bug to be a blocker, inability to interrupt the screensaver is merely cosmetic.

Upstream fix for this was:

commit 4a6f42dda00ba3b5616f8a86f0d4c9a652c7d9d4
Author: Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com>
Date:   Mon Jul 23 16:34:28 2012 -0400

    sync: Fix logic error from b55bf248581dc66321b24b29f199f6dc8d02db1b

This change is included in xserver 1.13.0, current RHEL6.4 build is xorg-x11-server-1.13.0-1.el6.
