Hi,

I did not upgrade my hardware and there was no update of x11-misc/xscreensaver-5.20.
But recently the screensaver does not blank anymore. The animated picture is transparent. I need to hide the screen with the screensaver, for transparent locking I already use xtrlock.

This failure only happens with my preferred saver "helios" from x11-misc/rss-glx-0.9.1.

I'm thinking either rss-glx or your video driver was updated recently. Can you confirm either? If so, try downgrading.

You are right, not the rss-glx but the video driver:
Code:
     Wed Nov 21 23:03:10 2012 <<< x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.19.0
     Wed Nov 21 23:03:12 2012 >>> x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel-2.20.13
I'll revert that and check again.

I checked my laptop, which uses video-intel, and it uses 2.20.14. Maybe trying UPgrading instead of downgrading and see if 2.20.14 works for you.

I do not even know which package to file a bug for this? Is this the xf86-video-intel? Other screensavers do not show the problem.

If it's just that one screensaver, then the problem is that screensaver.

This applies to all screensavers from x11-misc/rss-glx-0.9.1.
It can be solved by the setting Advanced->Grap Desktop Images.
EDIT: Sry, no it still does not work. Switching the option on and off, the preview sometimes does blank, but trying preview once again it doesn't blank anymore.

Now again, it has been fixed by manually selecting "GL visual" in Advanced Settings.
