Conflict between xfce4-screensaver and xfce4-power-manager-settings?

Well, maybe "conflict" is not a proper term.

I had unchecked the "Lock screen when system is going to sleep" button
in xfce4-power-manager-settings|System.  It was working fine.

At some later time, I installed xfce4-screensaver.  It was not
explicit and was together with many other packages, so it took me time
to realize why my screen got locked after some time of inactivity --
this seems to be the default of this screensaver.

Perhaps the above mentioned button should be unusable when
xfce4-screensaver is around?
