Here's how to recreate the problem:

When running gnome (you may need to install the xrestop package):
xrestop -b -m 1 | grep '<unknown>' | wc -l

Then trigger the screensaver:
gnome-screensaver-command -a

Then run the xrestop command again. I see the number increase by 2 every time the screensaver starts. These windows never go away and eventually take up all the slots. It doesn't seem to matter which screensaver module you use. I don't see this when I trigger xscreensaver.
