xscreensaver-demo screenshot

Description of problem:
(Screenshot attached)
gdm seems to invoke xscreensaver or gnome-screensaver as "gdm" user
when gdm session is launched but no one has actually logged in to GNOME
session, for example.
After someone logs in to GNOME session, xscreensaver or gnome-screensaver
still runs as gdm user, which leads strange behaviour.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. init 5, gdm launches
2. someone logs in to GNOME session
3. call xscreensaver-demo
Actual results:
screenshot attached.
Here xscreensaver-demo warns that xscreensaver-demo is called as tasaka1 user while
xscreensaver is running as "gdm" user.

Expected results:
xscreensaver should be running as login user
