Lock screen broken on Hardy current

Bug #187859 reported by Erik Andrén on 2008-01-31
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Starting with the hardy current upgrades from today (2008-01-31) the lock screen is broken, instead of displaying the normal grey box.
When activated, a black screen is displayed and only the mouse pointer is visible, which can be seen if moved outside this box (that now is invisible).
Entering the password blindly doesn't help and it's impossible to login, only a reboot or a forced xserver restart is necessary to regain normal operations.
