Patch for spec file.
Thomas, thanks for the report, doublethanks for the patches. :) I'll get them
built and put in Bodhi today.
Out of curiosity, why should xautolock honor the XSS state?
Video players and applications like games are using it in full screen mode to
disable screen saving.

it looks like this patch is causing xautolock to not function at all. reopening bug.
i'm not exactly sure how to fix it, and i'm thinking that honoring the XSS state
is not really a blocker, so my plan is to remove the patch unless there's a fix.
