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


Thanks Mateusz.  The only right-click context menu I tested was the
Firefox one.  I guess Firefox doesn't use GTK/GTK+.

I can confirm the behaviour you described with the right-click context
menu in Nautilus.  Excellent description too, by the way.

Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS.
unity 7.2.5+14.04.20150603-0ubuntu1

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.
