Bug#590121: Same problem, appears to be due to xinerama

I'm having the same problem.  It appears to be due to using Xinerama 
(cause of no randr), which is still necessary to support a single 
virtual display spanning multiple monitors each driven by a different 
video device.

I tried to get a stack trace, but gnome locks up while in gdb at 
breakpoint in gdk_x_error and I'm not sure how to work around that 
(tried from console virtual terminal, but gnome-screensaver won't run 
from there because it can't get the display).

I'm using the radeon driver.

Has anybody gotten gnome-screensaver to work with Xinerama?
