* I think* I've experienced the same thing. If it *is* the same thing,
there would be the value that what I've seen *felt like* programs
conflicting with each other over who's the boss at that second....

And maybe that's yet another part of this type of issue that's been
reported quite a few times at this point......

OR NOT. :)

My experience is that it will "snap" from one GUI interface to a
different one in such a way that you'd miss it if you blinked at that
second. That makes it feel like two different packages are trying to
vie for our attention at that second.

And, nope, no screensaver in my case. Decided I was so over having to
hard reboot, seems like most often with the power button, that I
stopped playing with screensavers.

It's not the screensaver... because I've experienced this multiple
login screen part of it in the last couple weeks again..

Ok, well, in that case, it's not for me right now. It's possible it
*is* screensavers' lock screen feature ALSO mucking things up when
they're installed, TOO. :D

A couple times recently, there have been conversations about initial
installation of a login package. During those threads, I've wondered
if that doesn't somehow play into it, although no 4-watt light bulbs
have flashed overhead as to specifically how and why that might be...

Well, nothing comes to mind beyond possibly having two fairly similar,
potentially conflicting programs installed without that being a known,
documented issue to date.

I don't know, now it sounds like you're just gettin'.... nitpicky.
