opengl problem

i'm using xscreensaver with kahakai (waimea fork, blackbox kind windowmanager). xscreensaver uses opengl and -unfortunately- unreal tournament uses opengl as well.

i got xscreensaver in my autostart, it works fine until i play ut and exit. after exiting ut, it appearently turns off opengl and -with that- my screensaver. so i have to restart my wm if i want xscreensaver to work again (or type xscreensaver again )

what can i do to fix this. or can some1 recommend me a screensaver that i can put in my autostart as well and doesn't use opengl?

looking forward to any solutions

ps: i'm using fedora 1

Well, you could use xscreensaver and just unselect
all OpenGL modules ... but maybe UT turns the actual
demon off ... have a look at
ps -A before and after you run UT
