Comment(by mdean):

 Are you using KDE?  This sounds like you're using a version of xdg-
 screensaver that's too old and does not support KDE4's screensaver.
 KDE4's screensaver requires xdg-screensaver 1.0.2 or higher (where xdg-
 utils 1.0.2 ships xdg-screensaver 1.0.1).  You can get the CVS version of
 xdg-screensaver at http://webcvs.freedesktop.org/portland/portland/xdg-
 utils/scripts/xdg-screensaver and drop it in place of the one currently on
 your system (likely /usr/bin/xdg-screensaver ).

 Users of KDE whose distros are shipping the old 1.0.1 version of xdg-
 screensaver should file bugs with their distros to get them to upgrade to
 a version that works with KDE.

 I will be applying a patch that disables xdg-screensaver usage if you're
 using KDE and your xdg-screensaver is too old.  If I haven't heard back
 from you by then, I'll assume that it fixes the issue for you.  If not,
 please reopen the ticket.

 If you're not using KDE/KDE screensaver, please let me know which
 screensaver you are using.  Note that xdg-screensaver currently only
 supports xscreensaver, GNOME screensaver, and KDE screensaver (where CVS
 version supports both the KDE3 screensaver and KDE4's "freedesktop"
 screensaver).  If you choose to run a different screensaver application,
 you should not have xdg-screensaver installed, or should fix it to support
 your screensaver application and submit the patch upstream.
