    I too nearly freaked out when I saw this one for the first time.
I was letting some updates roll while I slept. I awoke in the middle of
the night and still half in a daze I noticed it looked like the system
had crashed!
I lept out of bed and freaked out! I soon realized the joke was on me
once I grabbed the mouse and the desktop came back to normal.
I just took a deep breath and I was relieved the updates took well.
Needless to say I no longer use the *Random* screen saver option anymore! lol
