Brice, Michel,

the problem is still there. However, while still using the same graphic card 9200SE, my system configuration changed a bit :

Debian Release: 4.0
  APT prefers testing
  APT policy: (500, 'testing')
Architecture: i386 (i686)
Shell:  /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash
Kernel: Linux 2.6.18-3-k7
Locale: LANG=fr_FR.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=fr_FR.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)

I have tried what Michel suggested : (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5986)
- comment #13: commenting the load "dri" line in xorg.conf seems to solve the problem; the screensaver ran without crashing for about 25 minutes. Usually, when it crashes, it occurs within the first five minutes

- the other advice (comment #12) does not apply for me, since the options do not appear in my configuration file ( "XaaNoSolidBresenhamLine" and "XaaNoSolidTwoPointLine" )

I hope this helps, don't hesitate to ask me for other informations,
