Hi,

Obviously this is only a sideways answer (or even, apologetically, a non-answer), since you do have a real compatibility problem that needs looked at.

I don't use any screen-savers myself, and am set to update the VRDB when idle.  As I'd commented in another thread here within the last 2 or 3 days, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that in that setting, the updater is quite happy to grab a few seconds at a time until it's done, rather than requiring a fairly lengthy continuous period of inactivity which is what I'd expected.

So as a temporary sort-of-solution, try switching to the when-inactive update mode.  I'm disabled and practically live on the computer these days, but even so the updater seems to have no trouble finding those "quiet moments" to do its thing.

Best,
Mike
