I have a dual head system at work running MATE from wheezy-backports  
and all is well with mate-screensaver.

The unlock screen appears on the monitor where I left the mouse, the  
other monitor stays black during unlocking.

When unlocked, both workspaces on both monitors reappear as expected.

I will have to test this on Debian jessie, so my guess actually is,  
that we have another systemd issue going on here.

For now I reassign this bug to mate-screensaver. Let's see what my  
Debian jessie tests will bring next week.
