Bug Description

Simply log in remotely (ThinLinc, VNC, etc.) and you get a dialog stating that gnome-screensaver has crashed. One such report is available here:

https://errors.ubuntu.com/user/4d1bab2c9cd5a9cb11c04501a4a6a28eb367d6dbe38fc21aa0baa5d470d950ff46f96949884a5795a806dd62ffabb4005d068082c4001c9296f95327d2621d0c

Only seems to happen on the initial login for a user.

Scratch that. Happens every login.

The problem seems to be in gs_fade_finalize(). It calls fade->priv->screen_priv[i].fade_finish() even though that function may be NULL (which it will be if the display does not support any gamma adjustment).
