How is the gnome-screensaver started? I've reported a bug for this a
while back with no response. I have two instances of it running. When
my screen locks, it requires me to enter the password twice. I can
kill one of them, but next time I reboot, I'm going to have two again.
I found one location that is starting it.

  1 [Desktop Entry]
  2 Type=Application
  3 Name=Screensaver
  4 Comment=Launch screen saver and locker program
  5 Icon=preferences-desktop-screensaver
  6 Exec=gnome-screensaver
  7 OnlyShowIn=GNOME;
  8 NoDisplay=true
  9 X-GNOME-Autostart-Delay=5

 14 X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Component=general
 15 X-GNOME-Bugzilla-Version=2.30.0
 16 X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-screensaver

I went to System>Pref>Startup Applications. I did not see it there.
