Package: gnome-screensaver
Version: 2.24.1-2+b1
Severity: important

since I upgraded a few days ago the unlock dialog in gnome-screensaver is
extremely slow. It comes up with long delay when the screen was blank and it
takes up to two minutes !!! to finally unock after password entry.

The fingerprint (thinkfinger) is not recognized anymore at all...
