Guys (and gals),

I have done some tests and this bug is either Rev IDE or Engine. It  
occurs even when GLX2 is absent. I have made a recipe stack and it is  
now (hopefully) in the hands of the best minds of our generation and a  
fix will be in the next version of Rev.

GLX2 is not causing this anomaly. It's frontscript does not have any  
unpaired "lock screen" calls, as I suspected..
