I'm currently using XFCE and lightdm with light-locker. Sometimes, when I unlock from leaving the computer for awhile, all I get is a blank, black screen with the only the mouse visible. I can move the mouse around, and the pointer changes like the current application is clickable, just not visible. To recover, I have to restart the desktop using
Code:
service xdm restart


Here are some of the packages I have installed.

I previously had xscreensaver, but I removed it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if I should add any information.
