Any errors in the X logs?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-11-07 23:56:04 UTC
Bug reporter says:

The answer is: no errors in the log file, just an audit comment at the foot
saying "Client 14 rejected from local host."

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-11-10 20:29:17 UTC

This bug is quite old now.  Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it.  If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of xscreensaver, feel free to reopen.
