Screen Lock & Locate Pointer

Hi all,

I am running Debian Testing with Gnome desktop enviroment
2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Thu Oct 9 15:18:09 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

I not sure if this is a bug or not, but when I activate the the
'Locate Pointer' under System => Preferences => Mouse, which uses the
Control key to show the position of were the mouse pointer is on the
screen.  I have noticed that when this is activated the Lock Screen
function (ctrl + alt + l) no longer locks the screen.

The only reason I had to turn on the 'Locate Pointer' function is
cause when I was out in the daylight in the car GPS tracking for Open
Street Maps it was hard to find where the mouse was on the screen, and
no I was not driving and operating my laptop at the same time.

Is there anyway to fix this little problem besides changing the key
bindings for the 'screen lock' cause I have had a look into changing
the 'Locate Pointer' key binding but that seems to be hard coded some
