Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

When the screensaver activates it takes something like 5-10 seconds for
the screen to fade to black. This has always happened for me on dapper,
on various different machines.

Nothing needs to be done, as far as I can tell, just that the
screensaver is enabled and set to switch on after a certain amount of
activity.

I'm using the nvidia-glx binary blob with my GeForce FX 5500 card. My relevant xorg.conf sections:
[...]
Section "Module"
        Load    "i2c"
        Load    "bitmap"
        Load    "ddc"
        Load    "extmod"
        Load    "freetype"
        Load    "glx"
        Load    "int10"
        Load    "type1"
        Load    "vbe"
EndSection
[...]
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5500]"
        Driver          "nvidia"
        Option          "NoLogo"        "true"
        Option          "RenderAccel"   "true"
        BusID           "PCI:3:0:0"
EndSection
[...]
Section "Screen"
[...]
     DefaultDepth    24
[...]

xscreensaver behaves normally, and blanking/fading out the screen takes
just a second or two.
