Bug Description

  Since upgrading this machine to Oneiric, about half the time the screen blanks I end up with the date/time bar at the top and then the rest of the screen is white when locked. Moving the mouse etc brings up the password box and the correct background and all works fine when I unlock.

I'm not 100% sure but I think one scenario this happens in is:
   Lock screen (e.g. ctrl-alt-l) - bar at the top and black rest of screen
   Move mouse and the unlock box comes back
   Hit escape or leave it so that the unlock box disappears - and now I have the white screen
