xscreensaver goes zombie?


Has anyone else had trouble on a Redhat 8 system with the 'molecule' xscreensaver becoming unresponsive and sucking up all the CPU? I left a box on over the weekend and when I came back the 'molecule' screensaver was using up all resources and was locked up. (I was able to ssh into from another PC and did a 'top'). After I kill the molecule process the system is running fine, X hasn't crashed or anything.

This has happened a couple of times... in efforts to fight it off I have built a fresh kernel and have reconfigured X. I'm gonna try installing XScreensaver from source next.

thanks for any help you guys can offer,
jpbarto

ok, well I installed from source the latest xscreensaver and started it running. now 'flurry' locks up the machine as well. there is a voodoo 3 card in the box... that wouldn't be causing any problems would it?
