It would seem from a quick scan of the source, that the logo is compiled
in. In utils/images there are logo-180.gif, logo-180.xpm, logo-50.gif,
logo-50.xpm, logo-big.gif and logo.eps files along with some .png files
which are replicated in /usr/share/xscreensaver/glade. You could try
dropping a logo in there, though I get the feeling that is only for the
preferences dialogue.

Greetings Tom, and thanks for the quick response. What with the holidays I haven't had a chance to check out those locations. I'm reluctant to recompile the app just for changing the icon. Perhaps I will design a new one and submit to upstream as patch and hope for the best. In the meanwhile, I will try out some of your findings and let you know if its modifiable.
