Thanks, but that won't work. I need to be able to lock existing sessions, leaving them running, and disable unlocking the screensaver.
Maybe that approach will work though, using dcop to lock. Just need to find & chmod 700 the locking/unlocking bits of the screensavers used in KDE & Gnome, I guess.
In fact, it might have been my approach had I not gone off on my hours-long pam.d tangent.
I may mess around with it. Thanks again.
