As NoOp wrote, it should be the same: if you uncheck  'Lock
screen when screensaver is active' in sreensaver dialogue, it should be unchecked in
gconf-editor apps/gnome-screensaver|lock_enabled. If this is not the case, you may consider to file a bug.
Sorry for asking maybe stupid question : You did try to uncheck those options in both programs (leave it blank in both)?

In gconf-editor ctrl+F --> in the search box write xscreensaver -->
select both options offered. Then look in keys it may find for relevant
(lock or similar) string.
You may consider also to reinstall xscreensaver and then purge it (mark
for complete removal, including config files), if you did not it
