Hm, same here.

I did this before with indistinguishable errors.
xscreensaver is still awaiting idleness (time is set to one minute but
nothing happens). xscreensaver-demo works fine as "Blank Screen Now"
works fine too.

I'm running windowmaker, but xscreensaver do not run with gnome too.

Ahh, I've found the difference and where the bug is. I'm using two
screens - two displays with an own xserver on each one. Starting xfree
with only one screen xscreensaver runs fine. The problem does not occur
in ia32 mode so it has to be a bug in the amd64 version of xscreensaver
using two screens.
