    I just noticed a very strange problem with my screen saver. I have it set to ask for the user account password. When the password dialog box comes up, I can click anywhere on the screen (not in the dialog box), and drag the screen saver away to reveal my desktop. The dialog box remains in the foreground, but I can click on things in the finder, open programs, windows, ect. This problem only happens on a few of my screen saver modules, including the Apple included "Computer Name". I have additional screen saver modules I've downloaded that reproduce the problem, some don't.....very weird.
    I've tried to reproduce it on my mom's computer, and it doesn't happen. We're both running 10.2.6, and we've both had fresh installs of OS X within the last week. I've also repaired permissions. I'm stumped.

    I first noticed it on the default, Apple installed "Computer Name". I then noticed it on some other modules, from different programmers. I don't think it's the modules' fault, it seems like a system issue, since its affecting both Apple and third party modules.
