Bug Description

If you have "Lock screen when system is going to sleep" checked in Power manager's preferences or "Lock Screen with System Sleep" in the preferences of xfce4-screensaver , and e.g. xscreensaver running and xfce4-screensaver not running, but installed, it will be used for locking instead of xscreensaver. It does not help if you set property xfce4-session > general > LockCommand to 'xscreensaver-command -lock' (e.g. in Settings Editor).

It should use what is set in LockCommand property and if not set, use the daemon running.
