If someone could take a look at http://bugs.debian.org/428797, I'd
be grateful. Jamie says that:

 2: xscreensaver already receives and reacts to RANDR
    RRScreenChangeNotify events (in driver/timers.c:1010);

with xrandr, XScreensaver does *not* blank it when it locks the
screen. If I restart the daemon, then it works appropriately.

For your convenience, driver/timers.c is available here:


I have a setup here in which I can try things out, but I don't have
the time to dig through the code.
