[Bug 310351] [NEW] Kubuntu screensaver xdg-screensaver broken

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kscreensaver

xdg-screensaver returns "bad call" for all values tested. Looking at the script, I'd guess it is because it detects the KDE desktop and tries to
use dcop when KDE4 has moved to dbus, but that's just a guess.

For example:
$ xdg-screensaver activate
call failed

lsb_release -rd -> Ubuntu 8.10
Flavor is kbuntu
