Bug with Auto-Locking keychain


I think that there is a bug with auto-locking my keychain in Mac OS X 10.4.  I wanted to automatically lock my keychain, so my laptop would ask for my authorization in order to get a password out of the keychain.  This is in addition to my current setting where I get asked for my password when the screen saver dismisses.


When I enable it, I do get asked for my authorization when an application wants to get a password from the keychain.  The problem is when the screen saver is activated on my laptop.  When I try to wake my computer up from the screen saver, the password dialog doesn't appear.  I have to restart the computer in order to use it. 


This problem goes away when I disable the auto-locking of my keychain.
