Ok, makes sense. But what I don't understand yet is that I have had the
same issue with previous releases of Fedora, and there the combo
gnome-screensaver and "Launch GNOME services on startup" solved the
issue. So has something changed radically since then?

I still have gnome-screensaver running under Xfce in my old computer
with Fedora 20 and - was it Xfce 4.10?
