[Bug 991186] [NEW] Xlib: extension "MIT-SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display...

Public bug reported:

I run boinc on headless ubuntu boxes. I use ssh to connect to my
headless boxes.

 When making the switch from 10.04 to 12.04 (the 7.0.24 boinc version),
my ssh command line prompts started showing a "Xlib: extension "MIT-
SCREEN-SAVER" missing on display..." error message, repeating over and
over on whatever ssh window I have open. This makes it impossible to do
command line work on my server as whatever I'm working on goes bye bye
as my screen fills with the message...

I need to either know how to either: stop the error message from showing
on my command line, or fix whatever is causing the error in the first

This bug is a big enough issue as to where I won't be using boinc on my
headless 12.04 boxes until it is resolved.
