Setting aside suggestions about how to get that to work, the gnome version of the xscreensaver & hacks works nearly perfectly.  The exceptions are those hacks that look up or use text in a file.  When they run, they only show "xscreensaver-text: not found".  What file do I look for to edit / add the string and what is the format for that string?  What amazes me is I have Googled for "xscreensaver-text: not found" and did not get one hit! I'm running FreeBSD 6 stable w/ gnome 2.12.

I assume you're using gnome-screensaver plus xscreensaver-hacks.  If so,
then this is a known issue.  xscreensaver-hacks does not build enough of
the xscreensaver bits.  I'm currently working on this.  In the meantime
xscreensaver-gnome is a complete xscreensaver package.

I will also investigate the popsquares crash.
