This bug has bitten me on new installs. I also wish xscreensaver would default to a simple screen saver (such as Deco). I can't count the number of times a machine has frozen on a new install when it goes to a random 3D screensaver and the graphics card was not set up properly. This results in what appears to be a hard lockup for a new user. And this results in more posts to the forums. Let the user explore the screen savers on his own time. Using Random as the default adds to problems at a time when the user base is growing.

Excellent bug description by Bergman.
