This should happen in casper or the desktop package that creates the "start screen saver" button not ubiquity which is the installer.

Actually we do not want to start screen-saver at all, once ubiquity is running. This is part of the design, as a black screen can be confusing. So we actually disable the screensaver when running ubiquity, see bug 951336. So there should be no way to activate screensaver. Can you add a screen / photo where that is visible?

Hm.... I am actually confused where that item is coming from. The fact that it's not translated, also suggests that it's not under ubiquity's control, yet should be.

We should probably change the: disable-lock-screen key as well.
