[Bug 698348] Re: screensaver does not display but screen is locked


Confirm on a natty installation on a Toshiba Satellite, sometimes I wake up the computer, and the main screen shows, I can normally move the pointer; in a few cases, the screensaver will pop up with a delay, letting me see the actual screen (possible security loophole), so after the balnk screensaver shows I can enter the password, but most of the times when it happens, it just stays like that, with the screen showing, the mouse pointer moving regularly, but being unbale to interact with anything; the ctrl-alt-fx combos work to switch between consoles, but the screensaver won't come up.
Now that I found a suggestion in here though, I will try opening the first textual console with ctrl-alt-f1 and try killing the screensaver process with htop, will report in here.
