I'm not sure. I do know that withe the nvidia driver in previous 
releases, the machine would lock up. When I first experienced a problem 
with xscreensaver in fc2, I assumed it was a machine lock up; it may 
have been the other though. What are the symptoms of the infinite timer 
loop problem? Either way, in both cases I have found that selecting 
blank screen only from the xscreensaver preferences allows me to avoid 
the problem altogether. Still a shae though. I don't have this problem 
on my debian boxes (I'm not using nvidia drivers/hardware on those boxes 
either though)
