Bug#895152: cinnamon-screensaver: cinnamon-screesaver-command only locks the screen the first time it is called

control: retitle -1 cinnamon-screensaver-command hungs if locking already locked screen


I have been able to reproduce this issue. I believe it's very similar to the other one you reported.

In my test, I waited long enough with the screen locked, that just one second call to cinnamon-screensaver-command failed:

marga@penelope:~$ date; cinnamon-screensaver-command -l; date; cinnamon-screensaver-command -l; date
dom abr  8 18:04:50 CEST 2018
dom abr  8 18:04:51 CEST 2018
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/cinnamon-screensaver/cinnamon-screensaver-command.py", line 73, in on_client_ready
File "/usr/share/cinnamon-screensaver/cinnamon-screensaver-command.py", line 90, in perform_action
GLib.Error: g-io-error-quark: Se alcanzó el tiempo de expiración (24)

<... and it hungs there forever ...>

So, what I see happening here is that cinnamon-screensaver-command is trying to lock a screen that is already locked. It times out and then hungs, like when it can't lock because of a popup. It's likely that this bug is the same as 895150. In other words, cinnamon-screensaver-command misbehaves when it fails to lock the screen, regardless of why it fails.
