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


Yes screen gets locked when menus are open since a couple of Unity

But right click context menus are a different story. For example when I
have right click menu opened in Nautilus the screen goes blank but when
I move the cursor I see the whole screen and then only after clicking
somwhere screen gets locked. So you can't interact with programs but you
can see everything.

Also with right click menu in Opera the screen never gets locked. But
right click menu opened in FireFox, Spotify, Ubuntu Web Browser gets
screen locked at the same time it blanks.

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.
