I'm almost sure it's related to fade in/out.

I have the same problem with xscreensaver BUT THANKFULLY, since
xscreensaver is not as HIGified as gnome-screensaver, one could remove
fade in/out entirely and easily.

Now it doesn't lock up, and I removed gnome-screensaver until further
notice from y system.

I believe it may be trying to fade TOO SMOOTHLY...
