This bug was fixed in the package xscreensaver - 5.08-0ubuntu1

xscreensaver (5.08-0ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * New upstream release (LP: #392374)
    - New hack, `photopile'.
    - Rewrote `sonar' and `jigsaw' as OpenGL programs.
    - Minor tweaks to `maze', `m6502', `hypnowheel', and `timetunnel'.
    - Savers that load images now obey EXIF rotation tags.
    - Arrgh, more RANDR noise! Fixes this time for rotated screens, and for
      systems where RANDR lies and says the screen size is 0x0.
    - When the password dialog has timed out or been cancelled, don't pop it
      right back up a second time.
    - Password timeouts/cancels don't count as "failed logins".
    - Retired some of the older, less interesting savers:
      say goodbye to `bubbles', `critical', `flag', `forest',
      `glforestfire', `lmorph', `laser', `lightning', `lisa',
      `lissie', `rotor', `sphere', `spiral', `t3d', `vines',
      `whirlygig', and `worm'.
    - Merged `munch' and `mismunch'.
    - Updated `webcollage' to use twitpics.com as well.
  * debian/patches/20_hacks_Makefile.patch:
    - Refreshed
  * debian/patches/24_hacks_xsublim_enable.patch:
    - Refreshed
  * debian/patches/25_xsublim_missing_man_page.patch
    - Put back removed man page
  * debian/patches/53_XScreenSaver.ad.in.patch:
    - Refreshed
  * debian/screensavers-desktop-files/*:
    - Updated for new/removed/changed screensavers
  * debian/control: Added Bzr link

I hope you can coordinate this with Debian in the future. In my opinion xscreensaver in Ubuntu should better be merged with Debian rather than forking away again. We are just about to release 5.08 in Debian, and it is a shame to see duplicated effort that can be spent on something else.

I was away in the weekend to I didn't see the update request from Friday, otherwise I would have pointed you to http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/xscreensaver.git;a=summary which has 5.08 packaged.

No problem Tormod, there seem to be a number of differences between the releases I'll look into those and work at reducing our delta (hopefully down to zero).

Great. I guess there will always be a delta because of branding, unless we come up with a smart, derivative-friendly way to deal with it. And maybe we can use bzr and vcsimport to coordinate package maintenance better.
