[Bug 880774] Re: screen-lock can be bypassed



we use linux for vmware player and the linux starts vmware player in
fullscreen too. If the vmware player has mouse and is fullscreen, the
lock does not work.

We have updated the lock-screen script, it sends ctrl-alt-shift (vmware
player shortcut to release mouse) to X server (using lineakd xsendkeys)
and vmware player releases the mouse and then the lock screen works.

Bug description:
  when running a fullscreen program (eg tuxpaint) the user can bypass
  the screen lock just by clicking outside hiw window (tux paint runs in
  fullscreen -changes resolution to a lower one- and the screen lock
  shows the whole screen, but the lock is within the smaller window)
