Hi Michael & Jesse,

I just ran a test with "ps auxww | egrep -i saver" before and with the
dialog on the screen using a virtual terminal.  It looks like the
binary is launched as
"/usr/lib/gnome-screensaver/gnome-screensaver-dialog --status-message=
--enable-switch" on my mostly default 9.10 Karmic system.
