Basically, the opengl screensavers are not showing up. They did show up
previously in both 3.5.12 and R14, but on this install, they are not showing up
in 3.5.13-sru. Is there some command that I can run from the cli when launching
'kcmshell screensaver' that might disclose where the failure is?

I am running the *EXACT* same tdelibs and tdebase as I am on another 3513-sru
install where the screensavers are fine, so I haven't a clue where this failure
may be.

On this particular box, all xorg and x11 libraries are the same as on the
working 3513 install, so it isn't xorg/x11 related. This box does have a newer
kernel from today, but that's about it. What else is relevant to have kcmshell
screensaver load the list of opengl screensavers?
