I'm afraid not.  The gnome-screensaver-preferences application has gone
in F15.  I think the idea is to have stuff like this in the System

not to have made the transition.

Is this in fallback mode?  I only tried it briefly using the Beta Live CD.
I was unable to get launchers in the panel to work properly.  Reported as
Bugzilla #697306.
