Hmm.  ;-)  Oddly enough, ones that do that don't seem to work from me.
And *some* of the ones that are supposed to grab frames from the screen,
don't either.

If you look in the advanced properties for individual screensavers, you
can find the executables that they use.  You could try removing them,
making them non-executable, or putting something else in their place.
Test this for any bad reactions, though.

You could also probably change the permissions on their configuration
file, so they couldn't easily change it.
