Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.131-5
Severity: normal


Since 0.131-2, acpi-support recommends xscreensaver (nice feature BTW).

However, Gnome user already have gnome-screensaver which behaves
properly. I have quickly check the package logic, and I have the
impression that it should be ok to recommends:
.... So xscreensaver isn't installed on Gnome desktop.

(People using non-gnome desktop would enjoy your new features, and gnome
users would use Gnome stuffs).
