           Summary: gnome-screensaver does not provide a xscreensaver-
                    command repalcement
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: gnome-screensaver
        AssignedTo: ogra at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: lathiat at bur.st
         QAContact: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

gnome-screensaver does not provide a tool with the same API as
xscreensaver-command, and nor does it alternative itself to
'xscreensaver-command' (obviously that would only be usefull if actually worked
the same which it doesn't yet)

I considering this pretty major as it breaks applications stopping the
screensaver from activating, e.g. totem, etc, and can be very annoying if we are
going to ship this by default.
