I'm sorry, I should have made sure that the file exists.  I do have 
sid installed but now that I checked, the file isn't there, even 
though the gnome-screensaver package is installed.  I believe apt-file 
has a cache and I guess it doesn't get updated every time the system's 
packages get updated.  My bad.  (Actually, does it every get updated if 
one doesn't set up a cron job or do it manually?)
