Errr. Oops. Better not do what I said previously (at least not permanently).

Because of [1], that is maybe not the right fix (however, it should work).

Can you do

 $ cat $(which xflock4)


It seems to be a wrapper that just uses other tools to do the actual locking. 
Which ones?

It might be that it doesn't find xscreensaver-common but does find 
gnome-screensaver-command in your profile. Either way it's using something to 
lock the screen which then won't be able to unlock.
