Description of problem:
System freeze when choosing Pulsar (GL) screensaver.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Using KDE Control Center, go to Appearance % Themes, Screen Saver.
Then select the Pulsar (GL) screensaver from the list.
Actual Results: System immediately freeze (without even pressing Test button),
with mouse cursor still moving,
but clicks not responding. Keyboard is also frozen, Ctrl-Alt-Backspace not
working. Only the hardware reset is possible.
This screensaver seems to be the only one that causes problems.
All other GL-screensavers work, and can be seen fullscreen using the Test button.
