Bug#895150: cinnamon-screensaver-command: Crashes and hangs when unable to grab the keyboard/mouse
control: severity -1 normal
Thanks for the report. I have been able to reproduce and I agree that
this is a bug, although definitely not an "important" bug.
I understand that you are trying to script your screensaver
interactions, but the screensaver already ships with builtin
functionality for triggering after idle time, etc, so a misbehavior in
the cinnamon-screensaver-command does not justify severity important.
Regarding the actual bug, I guess the code needs to be modified to catch
the exception and either retry or exit with error, but not hang as it
