Consider a briefly-unattended laptop protected by only a lock screen.

Normally the attacker would need a way to kill the X screensaver
without killing the X session. Would the above make crashing the X
session (and thus being dropped back to the display manager which
auto-logs-in) sufficient to gain access?

If so, this sounds like a bad idea (or at least an argument for
something like physlock).
