    avoid xscreensaver unlock screen when switching from user


    I have Lubuntu 12.04 installed on a macmini and here is what bothers me: when I switch from one user to the other one, I have to type twice my password: once for LXDE, and once for xscreensaver. I used xscreensaver-demo to ensure that the screen is not locked, but it doesn't change anything. Here is the .xscreensaver:

    timeout:        0:10:00
    cycle:          0:10:00
    lock:           False
    lockTimeout:    0:00:00
    passwdTimeout:  0:00:30
    visualID:       default
    installColormap:    True
    verbose:        False
    timestamp:      True
    splash:         True
    splashDuration: 0:00:05
    demoCommand:    xscreensaver-demo
    prefsCommand:   xscreensaver-demo -prefs
    nice:           10
    memoryLimit:    0
    fade:           True
    unfade:         False
    fadeSeconds:    0:00:03
    fadeTicks:      20
    captureStderr:  True
    font:           *-medium-r-*-140-*-m-*
    dpmsEnabled:    False
    dpmsQuickOff:   False
    dpmsStandby:    2:00:00
    dpmsSuspend:    2:00:00
    dpmsOff:        4:00:00
    grabDesktopImages:  False
    grabVideoFrames:    False
    chooseRandomImages: True
    imageDirectory: /home/carl/Pictures/screensaver
    mode:           blank
    selected:       16
    textMode:       url
    textLiteral:    XScreenSaver
    textProgram:    fortune
    programs:                                                                     \
                                    maze -root                                  \n\
    - GL:                           superquadrics -root                         \n\
    Any way to avoid typing the second time my password ?

    Thanks in advance.
