Probably xscreensaver does not know about session management so it
is not part of the session which xfce saves and later restarts?
It is started by startxfce4 (it is called from /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc) and
I don't think anything special needs to be done to have it enabled,
but maybe I don't understand what you're asking ;)
