I am running in xfce so I was going to answer no, but I checked with pgrep
and I am running gnome-screensaver. What does it do anyway? Is it what does
the screen blanking when when the machine is idle? If so I can just stop
using it.

The backend and frontend both report build 19538. There is a possibility
that the frontend hadn't been restarted after I updated last night though. I
may have still been using the old frontend. I will have to double check that
tonight to confirm that I am still having issues with the newer build.
