After a recent update to Slack64 current, GL xscreensavers cause KDE to crash every single time they are run. The crash actually happens as the screensaver exits (ie it runs fine until a mouse or keyboard event, then crashes).
As I said this is a fairly new problem. I think it started happening after a recent update (but not the most recent one), though it may just be I didn't notice it before because I hadn't run any GL screensavers.
I'm using the i915 Intel module.

Reason: add sentence about when the problem started
KDE 4.5.5 (Slackware 13.37) or my own KDE 4.6.1 ?
I have the same issue, on i915 driver, with GL screensavers, but only in KDE 4.6.1 (I do not run 4.5.5)... I also tested the same screensavers in XFCE, but they are fine there.
