Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

In Edgy.

>From the System menu, select "Quit...".  Choose Lock screen.
Alternatively, press the "Lock Screen" hotkey.

The screensaver fade happens, but then it stays black.  No scrensaver
turns on and its not possible to return to the desktop.  Moving the
mouse causes the cursor to appear, but no "Unlock" dialog.

If a terminal is open when locked, the area on-screen where the terminal
would be changes the cursor into a text select cursor (vertical bar
thing).  Using nvidia binary blobs^W driver.

** Affects: gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Untriaged
