Screensaver preference file

Hi!

Does anyone know where the pref-files for the screensavers are? I set a custom background on the screensaver lotsawater, but when I set a .pict file there, it just crashes. I've tried downloading the screensaver again, but it doesn't work(it prevents the screensaver selection screen from crashing, though). I'm guessing there's a preference file that needs to be deleted, but I don't know where it is.

Grateful for any help!

Thanks a lot! I did find out that deleting the pict file also gave me the desired result
