My bad, I should read more carefully.  You did indeed point out that is was
internal to the hacks.  In mitigation I offer that there are at least two
hacks that *do* in fact have bad command-line arguments (xmountains is one)
and I should take my own advice and file a bug about it.

Ok.  Tested all of those here.  They all work, and can grab the desktop,
except for glslideshow.  It works if I let it use the desktop image, but
has this in .xsession-errors if I point it at a directory of images:

X error in xscreensaver-getimage:
X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  72 (X_PutImage)
  Serial number of failed request:  35
  Current serial number in output stream:  37
xscreensaver-getimage: target pixmap 0x4200006 unexpectedly deleted
xscreensaver-getimage: target pixmap 0x4200006 unexpectedly deleted

The other hacks you list all work properly here.
