Description Thomas Fjellstrom 2010-07-19 17:05:25 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.4.4) 
OS:                Linux

After unlocking my laptop, the screensaver continues to run. It also leaks pixmaps, but thats another bug report.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
I tried to reproduce, but the screen saver won't come back when I try to lock/unlock again. I had to kill the screensaver because it was leaking pixmaps.

there is a chance that this is a dupe of bug #243067. please valgrind it.

i notice that the kde screensavers are rather tenacious - they indefinitely spit out X errors after the locker window has gone - i obviously need to fix that.

but you observed a bit more ... i think that was bug 245329

SVN commit 1188958 by ossi:

exit on x error if parent process is gone

this condition most likely means that our parent forgot to kill us (or
crashed in the worst case) and we are now trying to render to an
unexisting window, which floods the session log with errors.

FIXED-IN: 4.5.3
BUG: 245147

the bug as a whole may or may not be fixed ...
