Bug Description

According to http://xubuntu.org/news/xubuntu-14-04-beta-1/, light-locker is supposed to replace xscreensaver for XUbuntu 14.04, but /usr/bin/xflock4 uses xscreensaver in preference to light-locker if both are present. Since xscreensaver is also installed by the default install (or possibly by some package I installed - but it's not something I explicitly requested) this leads to the situation where the display is locked by light-locker if due to a inactivity, but by xscreensaver if one hits a lock button or key shortcut.

Presumably the default order should be changed in xflock4, but also XUbuntu shouldn't install xscreensaver at all.
