disable X logo screensaver in XGL/Gentoo

oh wise forum, will you lend me your ear?

i have a beautiful gentoo xgl install and i have one issue stopping me from showing the world how great gentoo and xgl work together. after a minute or two of idling, the laptop starts a screensaver i believe to be attributed to the X server itself. gnome-screensaver and xscreensaver will run, but this one takes precedence.

it is the gray background with the various size X logo appearing here and there. i want it gone! i think i can pass a -nologo option somehwere. i am not sure where it came from, but i want my pacman screensaver to run instead!

my thanks to you and dog bless.
