Span Screensaver across Dualhead Setup?

I am running Debian Sid (fully updated as of 15 minutes ago) with XFCE4 and the free "radeon" ATI driver (not fglrx) running a dual head setup with Mergedfb. Everything works brilliantly, I can move windows form one screen to the other, and even stretch them across both (movies too) and I get full DRI.

However, when my screensver comes on, I get 2 screensavers come up, 1 on each screen. They are not cloned as they are totally independent of each other. I've tried searching google and LQ but nothing is coming up except for people trying to make their screensavers do what mine is doing... I want the opposite. I want 1 screensaver to span both screens. I cannot find any setting for this anywhere.

How can I do this? Thanks!
