I find your question a little unclear.  If you are using SC, why would it
be a problem VT?  And VT's limitations are pretty well known.

Do you mean something like "is this a known issue using warp screensaver
with SC on FreeBSD 11"?  Did you try check the bug database or replicate on
another clean system or VM?

If you can reproduce the problem and there are no relevant bug reports, you
should consider filing one.
