Bug#389585: kdesktop: locking and unlocking the screen sets X screen saver timeout to 310

Package: kdesktop
Version: 4:3.5.4-2+b1
Severity: minor

Dear maintainers,

unfortunately I wasn't able to track down the source of this problem,
so I'll just report it to you.

Whenever I lock the screen via KDE-Menu -> Lock Session the X screen
saver timout will be set to the strange value of 310 seconds:

$ xset q | grep -A2 Saver
Screen Saver:
  prefer blanking:  yes    allow exposures:  yes
  timeout:  0    cycle:  600
[... locking and unlocking the screen now ...]
$ xset q | grep -A2 Saver
Screen Saver:
  prefer blanking:  yes    allow exposures:  yes
  timeout:  310    cycle:  600

I think I was once able to reproduce this by calling kdesktop_lock in
konsole, but now I get sane results using either parameters. Also,
when logging out of KDE (and saving the session) to the command line
and running startx again the timeout will be reset to 0, the desired

Unfortunately I have no idea what might be causing this behavior. In
kcontrol I have deactivated all screen saver stuff, but somehow the
timeout gets activated whenever I lock the screen, which is no big
deal, yet slightly annoying.
Sure, it might be caused by my mixing the distributions, but currently
of all packages kdesktop depends on only libgcc1 and libstdc++6 are
still from testing, so I wouldn't expect so.

Well, if you need any further information or if you want me to run any
further tests please just tell me, I'll respond as soon as possible.
