ScreenSaver locks up

On Haiku hrev 46271 the ScreenSaver prefflet locks up the second time it is launched. It has to be killed. This will continue unless one deletes the ~/config/settings/ScreenSaver_settings file. Then the prefflet will launch normally.

This doesn't appear to be thesame bug. I can open the ScreenSaver preflet and change settings including selecting a screensver then quit, everything appears to work fine, but on the secod launch, it cannot paint the window and will not quit. deleting the settings file seems to reset things and the preflet opens again without problems. on the next launch, however, the problem returns.

It's not the same bug, that's why I didn't close the ticket as a duplicate but it is caused by the same underlying issue which is a race condition in the window and renderer threads. I had a work around in place that made the issue much less severe but I was pressured to revert it.
