The cinnamon-screensaver requires the python library setproctitle and fails to run if it is unable to import this. The cinnamon-screensaver package does not depend on the python-setproctitle package. Other than the obvious, this also prevents screen locking.

Additional info:
* cinnamon-screensaver 3.2.13-1
* Only validated under amd64 but I presume is the case with the i686 package also.

Steps to reproduce:

Install Arch with Cinnamon as per the wiki.
Wait many years worth of rolling updates and cruft.
Clean up orphan packages as per the wiki: pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qtdq)
The python-libproctitle package has now been removed as it was installed by a dependency that is no longer in the pacman database.
This task depends upon
