xscreensaver ignores gnomecc setting, uses random instead

For some reason, on one of my machines, xscreensaver always sets the
screensaver to random, no matter what I do with gnomecc. However, when I
set gnomecc to "no screensaver", that does work.
Steps to Reproduce:
Note that I can't reproduce this on my other machines. So I'm not sure
what the cause is.
Do you have a ~/.xscreensaver file?
Yes indeed, and deleting appears to eliminate the problem. Perhaps gnomecc
should check for this? I actually thought I had tried that...
Hm, possibly. In any case, it's not really an xscreensaver problem.
(although one could argue that you should use either xscreensaver-demo or
the control-center capplet, but not both.)
Fixed in current xscreensaver, according to Bill.
