Screen lock crashes

xscreensaver (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When I return to my computer after locking it the day before, it is often unlocked and can't be locked againg. When I check the screensaver config (through the settings manager in Xubuntu-desktop), I get a prompt telling me that the Xscreensaver is not running.

I consider this a serious security issue, since unauthorized persons can get access to my whole desktop environment, which among other things contains database passwords and has access to certain restricted systems.

security vulnerability: yes → no
