This behavior seems to have been introduced in a recent commit and i couldn't find a way to disable it. All screen locking programs i tested (gnome-screensaver, kscreenlocker, slock, slimlock...), are basically rendered useless. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature... :) : http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=7d2543a3cb3089241982ce4f8984fd723d5312a1
