Public bug report changed:

Then we need to edit this bug's description and add SDL as affected by this bug. That way other bug reports for games linked against SDL can be marked as duplicates of this bug, and for the others we'll have to keep filling bugs (unless gnome-screensaver is dropped, but I don't think it's ever going to be considered).

However, I know even less about SDL games, so it's better you do it (you reported the bug), else we'll have to keep praying for "somebody else" to write an usefull bug report, which doesn't seem to be happening.

Usually, when the bug report is precise enough, it's fixed faster (that means being really precise about what to fix. Here, gnome-screensaver is not the application which code will be modified). At least, that was the case for vlc and xine.
