xscreensaver eats keyboard-events after activation

Bug #1759713 reported by sh-dvl on 2018-03-28
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xscreensaver (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

running xenial/16.04.3 with hwe-kernel with nomodeset (only possibility for this board with intel j4105) + -X11 with xfce.

start remmina in either version (original-xenial, ppa and fresh from git) and start a rdp-session in fullscreen.

wait for the time before xscreensaver blanks the screen.

after that, mouse still works well, but no keys will be transferred.

stopping xscreensaver will prevent any problem with keyboard (but let the screen unsaved)

minimizing the rdp-session and then maximizing it again will also help, but it

don't know, if any other applications have similar problems, because we use this system 99% as thin-client.
