Sounds stupid, but instead of creating the file on your desktop, try creating it in your home directory, or somewhere else. I've got it working with the command line looking like:

sh -c "kill `ps -caxwwopid,command | grep ScreenSaverEngin | cut -b 1-6`;/usr/sbin/screencapture /Library/WebServer/Documents/screen.pdf"

again... all one line

It just won't work if done remotely. No way. And actually, I think this is a security feature.

Regardless, forget about this tip. It will only work from the LOCAL command-line.
