1.47.1. RHBA-2011:0286: gnome-screensaver bug fix update
An updated gnome-screensaver package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The gnome-screensaver package contains the GNOME project's official screen saver program. It is designed for improved integration with a GNOME desktop, including themeability, language support, and Human Interface Guidelines (HIG) compliance. It also provides screen-locking and fast user-switching from a locked screen.
* Previously, using the "Pictures folder" screen saver with an empty Pictures directory could cause the gnome-screensaver program to terminate unexpectedly. This update applies an upstream patch that resolves this issue, and an empty Pictures directory no longer causes the "Pictures folder" screen saver to crash. (BZ#673990
All users of gnome-screensaver are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
