Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set Settings->Privacy->Screen Lock: OFF
2. Install xscreensaver
When xscreensaver is configured to kick in after 11 minutes, the GNOME lock screen takes over, instead.
When xscreensaver is configured to kick in after 1 minute, xscreensaver takes over (as expected)
xscreensaver should always take over after its configured wait time has elapsed.
does allow xscreensaver to always take over (as expected)
Recent versions of GNOME do not use gnome-screensaver for screen locking; reassigning.
