Subject: CVE Request: KDE screensaver unlock issue similar to GNOME one


Lots of our users also tested if the KDE screenlock program is affected
by the "unlock by pressing return" bug.

And it is.

There is also a race condition and/or a memory leak which causes
the lock program to terminate.

Suspend to * is not required, it also works just by pressing return.
For me it takes like 5 seconds. Machine load might help.

It is unclear which KDE versions are affected, reports mostly show
KDE 4.4.0.

Needs a different CVE than the GNOME one.

Ciao, Marcus
