Because screensavers exhibit patterns. They are loops.
It varies per screensaver, but there are ones that are
never touch the corners(window's mystify, bouble -
anything that bounces on the edges are statistically
more likely to wear the middle and seldom venture into
the corners)

The thing we are going to go for is no pattern. Static
is best, but hard to come by. Real TV samples switched
regularly is the next best. The number of channels
(70+) provides a nice long rotation cycle and
sufficiently varied data.
