Screen Saver Lock Causes Login Failures

I have set up pam_tally to disable logins after 5 failed attempts.  Now
when I enable the screen saver with the lock screen feature every time the
screen is unlocked a login failure is registered, disabling the account
fairly quickly.  Is there a work around or other fix for this?

It looks like the screen saver uses kpasswd to authenticate the user, but
kerberos is not being used (passwd/shadow).
