Hi David,

same here :-(

As I didn't find a/the reason for this I disabled the KDE 4 Screensaver 
and instead installed an Autostart-Entry for the XScreensaver (which 
runs 1a). I'm running on amd64 and tried both with kdm and (my "normal" 
way) to use startx. Btw: Locking the Screen did start the KDE 
Screensaver fine (when it was configured).
