Summary: SystemSettings is crashing trying to set, change or
test screen saver settings, screen saver crash on
Product: openSUSE 11.4
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.4
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Workspace

After a Screen Saver - System Settings crash which happened when I was trying
to set, change or test screen saver settings I got a KDE Crash Handler window
with information that application 'systemsettings' was closed unexpectedly
(Signal: segmentation fault (11)).
Screen saver's settings by default start screen saver as a black blank screen.
Bug itself looks like KDE bug 271658 (this bug has been marked as a duplicate
of bug 188623), but on current hardware it was successfully reproducible on
"official" openSUSE 11.4 (126.96.36.199-23-default), openSUSE_Tumbleweed, and
'openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso'. No bug available on the same hardware for
Fedora-14-i686-Live-KDE and for Fedora-14 i686 installed onto hard drive, both
were tested on the same computer and screen saver works properly.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute Configure Desktop from menu
2. Select Display and Monitor from the Personal Setiings
3. Select Screen Saver tab
4. Select screen saver from the list available
Manually: Application crash: Got System Settings - The KDE Crash Handler
Application 'systemsettings' was closed unexpectedly.
Signal: segmentation fault (11).
Automatically by default with: black blank screen instead of correct screen
Manually: Activate new screen saver settings, activate selected screen saver if
on pressing the "Test" button.
Automatically: correct screen saver activation.
With kdeartwork4-screensaver versions smaller than 4.6.2-1.1.i586 (current
version installed from 'openSUSE:Tumbleweed/standard' repository) was a problem
with activated password protection on screen saver, after password protection
activation was impossible to unlock the screen (including KDE4 4.6.0). But this
problem was not always reproducible in "official" openSUSE_11.4 and was not
reproducible in openSUSE_Tumbleweed/standard (current install, KDE4 4.6.2).
This makes problem severity as "major" due the potential security risks,
because user has potential choice between "unsaved active data no longer
present" or security risk with deactivated screen saver password protection
