A Bug in Xscreensaver?

Hi,

I just noticed a pretty serious issue with xscreensaver. I'm running a fully patched FC4 installation, and when I lock the screen in xwindows, xscreensaver crashes and grants access to the xsession when given an incorrect password. If I give the correct password, it lets me in, and doesn't crash. Here's the output from a xscreensaver -verbose:

Code:

Aborted
But if I enter in the correct password, everything is the same up until the pam exchange:

This is a real security issue since I will lock the screen and leave it for a while, while it updates etc. Any info is helpful, if I decide to submit a bug should I do that directly to fedora or xscreensaver.

Thanks!
