What program are you using to lock the screen --- xscreensaver or xlock?
Which versions of those? As Schwaine pointed out on another thread, Red Hat
ships from broken xscreensaver modules with its version of Gnome.

Netscape is, sadly, a program that has a lot of bugs. You might try upgrading
to the latest version is 4.78 available from
<ftp://ftp.netscape.com/pub/communicator/english/4.78/unix>. Good luck ---
I've had lots of frustration with Netscape.
