Description Joseph S. Atkinson 2010-06-29 18:00:20 UTC
xdg-screensaver performs a check for `mv -T` to safely move lockfiles to /tmp. FreeBSD does not support the -T switch, which causes mv to complain and spit out a usage example.

If an app is run from the console (such as vlc), when calls to xdg-screensaver are made, it spews this error information to the terminal, possibly leading the user to believe the application is attempting to misappropriately move their data.

Fix: This patch (which should just be inserted into ${FILESDIR}) comments out the offending test condition and replaces it with the `false` command to essentially skip to the else condition without noisy error messages.

IMPORTANT: You must remove the .txt extension required by web based pr interface.

Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Run multimedia/vlc from a terminal, opening any video multimedia type. Watch for scary message that the app failed to `mv` something...
