 This is hrev46007.

 The first few seconds (5 sec?) after the screensaver kicked in, one should
 be able to cancel the screensaver (move mouse, hit key) without the
 password lock popping up. That way, it's less irritating when the
 screensaver gets activated by accident when the "Fade now when mouse is
 here" is set.
 Same when it kicks in automatically after the specified amount of minutes.
 Think of showing a slide in a presentation for some time.

 IMO the separately settable password lock time doesn't make much sense.
 When the screen saver kicks in and nobody is there to deactivate the saver
 within a few seconds, it's probably save to assume the password lock
 should come up when the mouse/keyboard is used again. Why should the saver
 kick in in 10 minutes and the lock in 20?
