Smile gnome-screensaver does not unlock with correct password also

My Debian Sid gnome-screensaver has lock feature enabled.
when running screensaver,if i press the mouse or kbd and give my local user's password for unlocking,it doesnot works

I have checked dbus,hal,system-tools-backend etc and all of them are working fine .(can be restarted fine).

I dont know how can I get a backtrace of the application
What all services should I check?why do password authentication fails?
