Notice that such a thing was suggested, but actively opposed since over a year
To go back on topic, i agree that this is a serious bug, and should preferably
be fixed before the sarge release, or we will get lot of bad press. Notice
that this being active in a screensaver, means that your children may also be
subject to random porn if you leave your computer running and use the
screensaver to lock your account.
I personally would feel strongly insulted if my children where to be subject
to such a thing, and i would be ashamed to propose debian/sarge to any folk i
know, so i vote for making this issue RC and fixing it, even if it means
delaying the sarge release by a day or so.
