  [SecurityRoadmap] Locked screen shows the desktop

Status in GNOME Screensaver:
Status in gnome-screensaver package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 9.04

  When I lock the screen and arrives the next day, when I touch the
  keyboard and wakes the screen to enter my password an image of the
  desktop is shown under a very short period of time before the password
  prompt is shown.

  If someone has a camera it's possible to take a photo of the screen of
  how it looked just before it was locked.

  I'm using dual screen and a Nvidia built in driver. The image is shown
  in the laptop monitor, maybe on the extra screen that's cloned (hard
  to see because it's syncing to long to see).

  Please let me know if you need more information.
