I'm running nvidia 1.0.7174-3 using the Debian nvidia-kernel-source package
and do not have any problems with xscreensaver. I have the following installed:
rss-glx 0.7.5-4 Really Slick Screensavers GLX Port
xscreensaver 4.21-3 Automatic screensaver for X
xscreensaver-gl 4.21-3 GL(Mesa) screen hacks for xscreensaver
You might try killing the running xscreensaver and then starting a copy in
the foreground using the "-verbose" switch. Then run xscreensaver-demo to
make sure that you can lock the screen, etc.
Just curious - are you running KDE, gnome, or something else?
