Wrong, see --

control-center- does not contain
/usr/X11R6/bin/screensaver-properties-capplet, and
xscreensaver-4.01-1.ximian.1.i386.rpm does.

That's not Gnome 2.0, that's what red-carpet pushes out to everybody
using the released version of Gnome.  If you have found a Gnome RPM
of control-center or greater that includes the obsolete
screensaver-properties-capplet, then whoever built that RPM screwed up.
