Backport to fix polling with multiple screens

In xscreensaver v6.02, it is not possible on my system to obtain the version of the running process with `xscreensaver-command -version`.  It also affected `-time`.  It may be due to having a multi-screen setup with xscreensaver being started from the first screen.

The fix appears to be in v6.03 where the `version` is reset only once before polling all the screens.  Since it appears it may take more work before that version can be committed to ports, I have backported the fix.
