I do the following horrible hack:

Hide the first of the System -> Preferences -> Look and Feel ->
Screensaver entries as this is the gnome-screensaver one. To get GNOME
to run xscreensaver I do a bit of a hack by renaming the
gnome-screensaver program, and then symlinking the xscreensaver program
to gnome-screensaver.

# cd /usr/bin
# mv gnome-screensaver gnome-screensaver.old
# ln -s xscreensaver gnome-screensaver

I said it was horrible :-)
