Boris> Any ideas?
1. Which version of xlockmore?
2. How did you start xlock: in random mode or in any particular mode?
2. Which version of libc do you use?
If you read /usr/doc/xlockmore/changelog.gz, you find several lines by David
about modes that could or did crash, in particular under Linux. He releases
new versions quite frequently, and I upload the Debian version within a week.
You might want to study the doc, and call xlock such that some modes will be
used. Or even call it only with a simple and stable as "blank" :-)
