The locked screensaver will be killed along with the rest of the X
session with ctrl-alt-backspace.  When [kgx]dm restarts it will present
a fresh login window.

Are the screensavers not smart enough to intercept ctrl-alt-bksp?

For the OP: what's the goal behind preventing an X session from locking?
Perhaps there is a more elegant solution than simply disabling it.
