hi. i'm having trouble with xscreensaver. it started happening when i
cvsup'ed to 4.16 from 4.15. when i try to run xscreensaver-demo i get:

bash-2.05b$ xscreensaver-demo 
xscreensaver-demo: 18:33:14: error closing
"/usr/home/aelizondo/.xscreensaver": Bad file descriptor
xscreensaver-demo: too early for dialog?
Fatal error 'Unable to read from thread kernel pipe' at line 1100 in
file /usr/src/lib/libc_r/uthread/uthread_kern.c (errno = 0)
Abort trap (core dumped)

i've ran a few searches for similar errors and i saw some mentions of
similar errors in a gtk2-perl pr:

however, i also saw some mentions of it in the gnucash port,
apache/php4, even ruby.

does anyone have any ideas? is this due to recent changes in the way
freebsd does threading?
