This is one of those annoying "me too" messages - I'm stumbling on
gnome-screensaver as well...
Does anyone know why gnome-screensaver was chosen instead of xscreensaver?
xscreensaver is easy to use, unlocks *much* faster, and works with
existing software (e.g. totem and mplayer - gnome-screensaver has the
annoying habit of interrupting while totem and mplayer are playing.
acpi-support also requires xscreensaver for the moment).
gnome-screensaver, on the other hand, doesn't seem very mature, with
most stuff only configurable thru gconf-editor.
Sorry for the rant,
