Reproducing steps

  1. Having pam_panic in your pam.d of xscreensaver using the password function,
  2. Trigger the keyboard/mouse to let pam_panic prompt for its password,
  3. Wait for xscreensaver to pass the timeout.
  4. xscreensaver crashes and you can use the computer without authentication.


  1. xscreensaver should blank out and keep the screen locked.
