I tried that.  There are two screensavers there, but both of them are
xscreensaver, and I can't find that option.  

It might not be the default, although I thought I'd done a full
reinstall since the last time I had xscreensaver problems and not
fiddled with the defaults.  In any case, the screensaver certainly
wasn't asking for my password on 9.04.
