Re: Why am I logged out?

Well, no. I'm using good old-fashioned XFree3.3.6 and Helix Gnome 1.2

screensaver stops and I'm back at the gdm login window.

any other idea?

Did you know that if you play a Windows 2000 cd backwards, you 
will hear the voice of Satan?

That's nothing!  If you play it forward, it'll install Windows 2000.
