xdg-screensaver doesn't support xss-lock

Bug #2042740 reported by Rick Sayre

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xdg-utils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

It appears this was fixed in upstream "from freedesktop.org"

However that patch did not fully work for me, as the '^xss-lock' pattern doesn't find "/usr/bin/xss-lock" which is how "ps" actually lists the process

i'm attaching a patch which fixes the issue and is resilient to process paths

...note that using the xss-lock available from apt-get, the man page mentions the freedesktop.org patch
