That appears to reside in the gnome-appearance-properties

My screen saver has been messed up. The specific screen saver has
changed, DPMS no longer kicks in, though KPowersave says DPMS is
enabled and when I view the screen-saver configuration, no screen
savers at all are listed.

Oh, joy.

I removed most of the packages that were installed by installing
gnome-appearance-properties. My screen saver list has returned, as has
its proper (configured) behavior.

I knew that was going to be trouble...

Hmm... the thing does have a couple of oddities... (I have to autoload
it at the beginning of every session to ensure the theme and fonts are
loaded, but I suspect that is was an Enlightenment/Machine specific quirk).

However, I have only ever used it for font and theme management and
little else. The default screen saver manager at the moment for the
Gnome config is XScreenSaver and I see a full list in that. However, I
no longer use KDE and nothing is configured on that side, so any
KDE/Gnome interaction would not me noticed by me.
