No I'm not. And I'm not interested in trolls on bug reports either.

Well, Xfce doesn't provide any locking capability by itself, they rely on
something else. If the user uses a distribition, it's the packager role to
provide the correct locking stuff. If using tarballs, installer or svn, I guess
$user is able to find the required info by himself.

I'm not against warning the user, I just don't think it's a good idea in that
case. Document that xflock4 needs (obviously) a locking utility, document what
it needs (*screensaver, xlockmore). But don't bother him.
