Unable to Crash Screensaver
Authored by: vajonez on Jul 10, '03 08:09:07PM

It's true. Here is a repeatable case:

1. Activate password protected screen saver.
2. type "1234567890" into the password field (do not press enter/return).
3. while pressing the control key, type "akyyyyy" (do not press enter/return).
4. repeat step 3 three (or more) times.
5. press either the return or enter key. or click the OK button.

ctrl-a is the emacs key binding for "go to the beginning of the line"
ctrl-k is the emacs key binding for "delete everything from the cursor to the end of the line and put it in a buffer"
ctrl-y is the emacs key binding for paste the contents of the buffer
