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)
