I just installed the Xorg update files through the RedHat Update Agent. After the update, there seems to be a problem with the xscreensaver daemon. The update changed all of the setting I had in place for the different users. When I log in as a user, I am automatically loged out after 10 minutes (which I quess if the default). When I try to chage the screen saver settings ($ xscreensaver-demo) the application crashes and logs me out.
I am a newbie and not sure how to tackle this problem.

I don't have a Red hat box handy at the moment, but I think that running system-config-display should give you an option to change the screensaver settings. The more interesting question is what is causing it to crash in the first place.
