This bug is still affecting Trusty. Not only it affects cinnamon-screensaver, but it also affects gnome-screensaver. Anyone running either of these two screensavers will suffer their session getting hijacked by someone pressing the menu key before the password box comes up.

The patch is simple enough, it has been applied upstream and any further versions of gtk will not be affected.

I've built the package with the patch applied and tested that it correctly makes both screensavers behave, plus it gets rid of the infinite-menu problem (the original problem that the commit says it's fixing).

I'm attaching the debdiff with the patch. It would be great if this was uploaded to trusty.
