Root window becomes visible after screen saver activation

If I run X11 in rootless mode, then wait for the screen saver to activate, the desktop will be completely covered by a strange black window when I dismiss the screen saver. Running xwininfo on the window produces:
xwininfo: Window id: 0x381 (the root window) (has no name) Absolute upper-left X: 0 Absolute upper-left Y: 0 Relative upper-left X: 0 Relative upper-left Y: 0 Width: 1920 Height: 1178 Depth: 24 Visual: 0x22 Visual Class: TrueColor Border width: 0 Class: InputOutput Colormap: 0x21 (installed) Bit Gravity State: ForgetGravity Window Gravity State: NorthWestGravity Backing Store State: NotUseful Save Under State: no Map State: IsViewable Override Redirect State: no Corners: +0+0 -0+0 -0-0 +0-0 -geometry 1920x1178+0+0
Once the window is visible, the only way to dismiss it is to close the X server.
xdpyinfo shows that the server supports the MIT-SCREEN-SAVER extension, so that might have something to do with it.
