doesn't work is a poor description of the problem, with that description we have no idea what your issue is.

How are you locking the 'session' ? and by session do you mean your local desktop ?

do you get an error ? is so what is the exact error ?

when you successfully lock the session what do you see ? screensaver ?

When it fails does the screen saver come on but you don't get pronmted for a password when you come back ?

need more detail.

Take a look at the xscreensaver package, it might alleviate your problem.
