the locking scenario seems to be generally not supported too well by
x11. in kde we recently run into the problem that override windows
cannot be reliably hidden by the screensaver. i wonder what other do?
that's exactly XResetScreensaver

generally, also feel quite a dislike for this d-bus mania which is
usually justified with phrases equivalent to "x11 is fubared". fix it
instead of re-inventing the wheel just because it seems simpler.
