    Sick Bug Screen Saver

    I'm mostly posting these here so I don't forget. (And yes it is a critical issue!)

    1)Screen Saver will override the GUI (Not so good as it bypasses some code flow)
    2)Screen Saver 100% CPU issue.
    3)Add "ss_enable=1" to the config file.

    All three should be fixed now. Let me know if they are not.

    You sure can! (Matrix screensaver that is - pressing F9 should still toggle it on/off even if it is disabled otherwise).

    You've always been able to disable it. Go to Misc > Screen Saver... and set "Run After" to "Never."

    That's obscure...

    So what is ss_after supposed to be set to to in the config file to disable it then?
