  I saw the same problem.  I couldn't get reliably burned CD-RWs (old
ones that need replacing), so I tried an NFS/ISO install on a Compaq
IPaq P3 1GHz box with an i815 integrated graphics controller.  And
xscreensaver seems to kill the graphics unrecoverably (X seems to crash,
and there are some vertical lines on the left portion of the screen),
but I can at least hit the power button and it shutdown gracefully.
  I'm also still seeing the refresh screen problem described in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=132267 when not
using the two XaaNo* workarounds listed there.

Using FC3T3 with updates.
