[Bug 49579] Re: screen doesn't lock when some menu is open


As part of the big bug review for 16.04 LTS I have tested this on 15.10
and the bug is still there. I reproduced by opening the context menu on
the desktop.

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

  I'm running a fresh install of Dapper with screensaver set to 'blank
  screen', and 'lock screen when screensaver is active' enabled.

  If a panel menu (e.g. Applications) is open and the machine is left
  idle, the screen fails to lock. It fades out after the time period as
  expected, but the desktop reappears after a few seconds.
