Description Martin Simon 2012-10-10 11:06:59 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-screensaver-command -t (or --time in long form) does not work and return an error and result 0 seconds.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute command "gnome-screensaver-command -l ; sleep 2 ; gnome-screensaver-command -t"
Actual results:
(gnome-screensaver-command:16370): GLib-CRITICAL **: the GVariant format string `(u)' has a type of `(u)' but the given value has a type of `(s)'

(gnome-screensaver-command:16370): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_variant_get: assertion `valid_format_string (format_string, TRUE, value)' failed
The screensaver has been active for 0 seconds.

Expected results:
The screensaver has been active for 2 seconds.

Additional info:
There is another bug that gnome-screensaver-command -a|-d doesn't do anything, maybe the reason is similar.
