this is not related with gnome screensaver. gnome-screensaver was at the wrong place at the wrong time :)

I have exactly the same problem. For details please see my post at linuxquestions.org:


I'm currently running 2.6.20-16-386. In the forum posts that I linked you to, I was running 2.6.20-15-386. Despite this upgrade, the problem persists.

Closing the bug since it's very old without any activity in a long time. Please open a new bug against the graphics driver package if you have problems in 8.04 or later.
