I had the same thing but didn't get the pam_winbind log messages. From looking around the problem appears to be because non-root processes (like your screensaver) can't authenticate the account through sss.

For a workaround, I removed the existing 'account' lines from /etc/pam.d/xscreensaver and added just:

account required pam_permit.so
