I have experienced this same behavior, but from a different set of 
actions to trigger it.

On my machine, I have 5 partitions, which I boot at different times.

One of them is my primary system, which Lubuntu, which I am using to 
send this e-mail.  This (Lubuntu) partition uses XScreensaver.

Whenever I boot any of the other partitions, the next time I log-in on 
the Lubuntu system, just after logging-in, XScreensaver immediately 
starts running, and I have to re-enter my password on it, before I can 
do anything on my system.
