** Description changed:

  Intrepid & KDE4.2.1
  I don't have screensaver enabled but when the computer is left alone for
  long enough, the screen is locked & then later also the screen is turned
  off. Desktop computer so closing the lid etc doesn't apply here.
  Trying to enter the password just results the 'wrong password' message
  (or similar, can't remember now). Changing to tty2 , log in and killall
  krunner_lock kills the lock and going back to tty7 lets me use the
  desktop again.
  rhk at rubert:~/$ locate krunner_lock
  rhk at rubert:~/$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/krunner_lock
  kdebase-workspace-bin: /usr/lib/kde4/libexec/krunner_lock
  -> package responsible kdebase-workspace-bin?
+ This explains something: http://techbase.kde.org/Getting_Started/Build/KDE4/Troubleshooting#Locked_sessions
+ kcheckpass seems to have correct settings: 
+ -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  18840 2009-03-04 20:18 kcheckpass
+ Here's some log:
+ rhk at rubert:/etc/pam.d$ ls
+ atd  chfn  chsh  common-account  common-auth  common-password  common-session  cron  cups  cvs  kcheckpass  kdm  kdm-kde4  kdm-kde4-np  kdm-np  kscreensaver  login  other  passwd  polkit  ppp  samba  sshd  su  sudo  xscreensaver
+ rhk at rubert:/etc/pam.d$ cat kscreensaver
+ #
+ # /etc/pam.d/kscreensaver - specify the PAM behaviour of kscreensaver
+ #
+ @include common-auth
+ @include common-account
+ @include common-password
+ @include common-session
+ rhk at rubert:/etc/pam.d$ cat xscreensaver
+ #
+ # /etc/pam.d/xscreensaver - PAM behavior for xscreensaver
+ #
+ @include common-auth
+ @include common-account
+ rhk at rubert:/etc/pam.d$
+  - are the missing lines of /etc/pam.d/xscreensaver the problem?
