No Screensavers. Screensavers Diaspearerd!

Hi, today for no particularly good reason. (In that I haven't installed anything recently that I'm aware of) all of my xsceensavers in my desktop properties list in Kubuntu have dissapeared.

Can anyone give me any hints or clues why this might have happened - and more importantly, how to get them back? I can still view them in my root account - or individually via the external xscreensaver applet - but not in my KDE desktop properties. (Right click on desktop, select "configure desktop -> Screensavers").

It is very odd why they just disapeared without any good cause.

I don't like it when weird things like this happen.
