Good idea but have to use one of wine's spawn functions to execute
xdg-screensaver. exec() doesn't work at all like WinExec(), it would replace
the wine process witn the screensaver.
I intend to make another just implementation patch once it works properly.
Some things can go wrong executing system's native (*nix) programs from wine.
Now a question to others - does it look OK to call spawnvp (from wine/port.h)
from user32.dll? Throughout wine it is used only in implementing various MS
runtime libraries and in the utility programs winebrowser, winemenubuilder
