I see that both Ubuntu Dapper and Fedora Core 5 test 2 are shipping

Having now used both of them, does it seem slow for anyone else? It
seems that something has gone astray once or twice and forced me to
have to change vt and kill the process to get my session back.

I suspect that you may be running into:

If you think it is something else feel free to open a new bug and we can try to track it down.

Also, if you are on a system with a large number of users (>500) you may experience problems when running with user switching enabled. This is one reason why it is off by default. It can be enabled or disabled using gconf.

I didn't manage to get anything useful debugging-wise from it, does
anyone know the story here?

You can get debugging information from g-s by running it like so:
gnome-screensaver --no-daemon --debug

If we have a screensaver that you can't get away from, we should
consider not including this module during this release cycle.

I haven't experienced anything like this but that would indeed be a serious problem. I strongly encourage anyone experiencing such a thing to create a bug for it and work with me to solve the problem.
