*** This bug is a security vulnerability ***

You have been subscribed to a public security bug:

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

I can interact with gnome desktop environment for a few seconds before
unlock screen  appears.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open launch menu and select any item without launching it.
2. Leave computer for a while.
3. When screen goes black (using blank screen screensaver) move a mouse.
4. For a few seconds you get access to desktop like it is unlocked.
5. Screen goes black and you need to enter password to unlock PC

Without step 1 anything is fine. Tested my netbook under 100%CPU load.
