Yes, the "Constructing Modules" screen saver is flawed. I found, in the
forums, that it is a rather common flaw.
I had to go to the gconf-editor, for which I had to do a search, and got
into that and simply shut off the "Constructing Module" screen saver.
Now, two questions:
Does anyone know how I can remove that one, single, screen saver???
Can anyone tell me how I can get to the "gconf-editor" without all
the hoops and hunts???
Thanks for everything.... (and I feel rather proud of myself for
figuring this thing out.
