We have a machine at work which we use as a status display for our
servers which just runs an xserver and firefox. Even after turning of 
DBMS in xorg I have to manually set screen-saver control options using 
xset otherwise the screen will 'blank' after a timeout. I'm not sure 
if this will help given that you want the screen saver to run but you 
don't want the screen to 'blank'.

I have this in the .xsession file:
xset s noblank
xset s noexpose
xset s off
