    Changing the "Wait" value doesn't stay on Screensaver

    Right-click on Desktop, choose Personalize... click Screensaver on the Personalize dialog... in the Wait field, change it to some other value besides the existing 15 min... click Apply, click OK. Back on the Personalize dialog, click Screensaver again. The Wait field is back to 15 min again.
