Screen saver messes up after running VLC or fldigi.

Hi,

I’m running 11.2. My screen saver has been working fine since the begining in December, but now when I run VLC or fldigi my screen saver will kick on for only a few minutes then it will pop back to the log in screen as if I had moved my mouse or hit a key on the keyboard.

VLC about shows : gcc version 4.4.1 [gcc-4_4-branch revision 150839]
fldigi is latest version

I get a lot of these in var/log/messages:

unix2_chkpwd: gkr-pam: couldn’t unlock ‘login’ keyring: 1

unix2_chkpwd: pam_env(gnome-screensaver:setcred): non-alphanumeric key ‘alias sox=padsp sox’ in /etc/environment’, ignoring

unix2_chkpwd: pam_env(gnome-screensaver:setcred): non-alphanumeric key ‘alias aumix=padsp aumix’ in /etc/environment’, ignoring

unix2_chkpwd: pam_env(gnome-screensaver:setcred): non-alphanumeric key ‘alias timidity=timidity -Oe’ in /etc/environment’, ignoring

If I reboot, it works corectly until I run one of those two. Not sure about any other audio type of program. Bad updates, virus, or something else?

I also see that I have been getting a lot of these too while the screen saver is active.

pulseaudio[4778]: protocol-native.c: Failed to push data into queue

Really looks like an audio problem, but messes up my screen saver so I’m thinking I might need to move this one to multimedia.
