I checked both boxes in the screen saver configuration. Still get a
login screen - login from scratch, all applications are closed. If I
uncheck both, all is well, except that there is no screen saver, of course.
I tried different selections with in the screen saver, including blank
screen. Logout behaviour was unchanged. When you suggest a different
screensaver, are you referring to a different program? Can you recommend
