Huh? That's horribly broken. KDE's kscreensaver can lock the screen for root just fine.


Occurring as regular user here, too.
Or, at least, the screensaver does not begin and lock screen if I just walk away from the machine. If I manually lock the session by choosing this option from KMenu or right click on the desktop,
it is now functioning.  I couple of days ago, it was not.
No idea what changed that.
