Bug Description

When running tuxpaint in full screen mode, my son and I walked away for dinner. We returned to find the computer locked, courtesy of Ubuntu Unity settings. I have not changed the setting that enables screen saver when in tuxpaint. Thus, I was quite shocked I saw this.

Further, when I went to log back in, my login was held hostage by tuxpaint, thus I saw my background and a gray box where the login box would appear. But the login box was empty. The mouse pointer was the large hand used by tuxpaint. I was unable to login, whether using unity-greeter or or the actual login. I ultimately had to force-kill the tuxpaint PID via another TTY before I was able to log-in.

Also of note, I do use fast-user-switching.
