I did find, rather someone on the list told me,
but it didn't matter.
Thank you for the effort.
I discovered the program: /usr/bin/gnome-screensaver .
I have no idea why it was running on a KDE desktop:
My desktop has a captital K stepping in a gear in the lower left corner.
>From another virtual terminal,
xwininfo -tree -root
showed me a 1280x1024 window named gnome-screensaver.
I couldn't xkill it, but ps gave me its process ID.
As a stopgap, I copied it to another name, removed the original,
and made an empty file with all-zero permission bits.
Presumably this will cause me trouble at update time.

These are other distros, right?
I'd read of scientificlinux lately, but don't remember where.
