Description Chris Ricker 2003-02-13 11:26:48 EST
I'm running pre-beta5 (XFree86- ; xscreensaver-4.06-5) on a
system with a
GeForce2 MX video card

When I lock the screen with xscreensaver, the X server crashes after a
non-deterministic period of time

Nothing too interesting in ~/.xsession-errors:

xscreensaver-command: activating and locking.

The application 'gnome-session' lost its connection to the display :0.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.
The application 'gnome-panel' lost its connection to the display :0.0;

So it locks, then crashes, but no record why

Similarly, the log doesn't say anything. I'll attach that and the configu in a sec

see this with beta5 as well

the molecule3d screensaver seems particularly good at triggering it
