All you have to do is

a) make sure the last line in .xinitrc invokes xscreensaver,
b) configure xscreensaver to lock automatically, and
c) invoke startx as an argument to 'exec'.

Done this way, the following things happen:

a) the screen locks if you leave it,
b) if xscreensaver dies, the session dies, and
c) if the session dies, you're logged out.

Or maybe gdm is easier. ;-)
