i was the one complaining about xscreensaver-demo.

i just want to say that this little exchange has been quite
informative for me. using ldd and finding which executable made a call
against a particular library is a cool trick.

in my case the problem is still sort of intermittent, and here is i
think why: when xscreensaver-demo starts, it has a 'preview' window
that shows what the currently selected screensaver will look like. if
the currently active screensaver is bad (i.e. linked against libc_r),
then the window will pop up for a second but then instantly close.

in my case neither xscreensaver nor xscreensaver-demo link against
libc_r, so i think i now need to dig into the hacks folder to see
which of these is the culprit.
