I'm curious if issuing a new screen lock inadvertently and for an instant unlocks the screen and a redraw happens? Not the desired effect obviously but that would explain things somewhat.

Being used to make sure that lock screens no longer nested brought this down to 1.5 seconds. Rest of the code left unchanged! I really do not get it. That said, I am pretty happy with the fact. I only wish I would have found/tried this earlier.
