When using gnome (2.18.2) on FreeBSD and for example two users try to work on one machine using gnome's "Switch user" feature every time that the 1st user switches to the second or vice versa a "Lock screen" enables! Normally this should happen only if it's enabled from System -> Preferences -> Screensaver. This is a very annoying bug also I tried to disable lock screen completely using the value in gconf-editor but the problem still remains. I'm using gnome taken from the Gnome Timberbox package's repository "http://www.marcuscom.com/tb/packages/6.2-FreeBSD/Latest/".

Install freebsd 6.2 install gnome 2.18.2 from packages located on http://www.marcuscom.com/tb/packages/6.2-FreeBSD/Latest/. Add two users and try to use the gnome's switch user feature, everytime you try to switch your lock is screen nomatter do you want or not !
