When using xscreensaver, the dialog that prompts for a password when
unlocking the screen is not using GTK+, I think that's what Auke meant.
I understand the security implications and all, but I can't stand it
either, that's why I prefer gnome-screensaver which is fully GTK+
albeit a bit more insecure.

Actually, I think I secretly hope that a true hacker will show up at my
desk during lunch break and exploit a 0-day vulnerability in the GTK+
library to gain access to my computer and steal my custom dark GTK+
theme, which can be seen when someone accidentally moves the
mouse, even if the screen is locked... :)
