Public bug reported:

I'm not sure if this is a bug with gnome-screensaver or the time-admin
tool in gnome-system-tools, but when the time is changed past the
threshold (Set session as idle after in Screensaver Preferences), the
screensaver activates. For example, if the threshold is 10 minutes
(default), and my system time is 6:00, if I open time-admin and set my
clock to 6:11, the screensaver will activate when the OK button is
pressed. This is a bug because the user has not actually been idle for
any amount of time - the screensaver should ignore time adjustments made
by the user.

** Affects: gnome-screensaver (Ubuntu)
