Bug#694911: gnome-screensaver: Dims the screen on all the tty's

Package: gnome-screensaver
Version: 2.30.0-2squeeze1
Severity: minor

When locking the computer and the display is fading to the screensaver if the user switches to a different tty during the fading process all of the tty's have the same screen brightness as the GUI's tty.  Normal screen brightness on all tty's is restored by switching back to the GUI's tty after the fading process has been completed.  Thank you for providing and maintaining debian.
