have you doing the lock screen using non-root account?

No.
I have tried it logging in as "root"...

Then that will never work neither under FC4 nor FC5, I can not understand the logic behind that (why windows permits that and Linux always tells you do'nt use Root account).
PLEASE DEVELOPERS OF FC6, solve this issue for both the normal locking and the screensaver function.
in the time been, anyone logging in as a root and wants to lock the system, I recommend downloading a utility called "Xlock".
