Hello Roland,

I asked some questions, you did not answer them. Maybe you can tell a
bit more about your problem.

I can remember I did some tests with the screensaver on both the client
and in the session, but I did not see any problem.

Maybe you mean something else then simply using a screensaver?
I am not sure my screensaver is using the X11 screen saver extention.

What is exactly this X11 screen saver extention and why do you need it?

Are you using full-screen sessions or not, and what is you host-OS?

With regards,
Paul van der Vlis.
