I get the exact same and would love to hear a solution.
But after burning my desktop image onto my favorite monitor here's what
I ended up doing: I installed xscreensaver. I turned off the KDE
screensaver in the control panel you mentioned above. Then in the
~/.kde/Autostart directory I made a link to the xscreensaver as follows:
ln -s /usr/bin/xscreensaver ~/.kde/Autostart/.
From there I type in the command window: xscreensaver-demo
That pulls up the dialog window that lets me choose what screensaver,
how long and all the other settings associated with screensavers.
