All the individual xscreensaver patterns are different programs submitted 
by different people.  Some do have compatibilities regarding video 
drivers, or may otherwise be incompatible on certain machines.

For example, the 'PacMan' routine worked fine for years on different 
machines, but I found I had to disable it after an update to Xubuntu 
(I don't recall which one).

Run the xscreensaver utility and go through all the saver pattern's and 
disable those that don't work or cause issues.

Once you figure out what works and what dosen't you can create a more 
detailed bug report for those.
