Which browser are you using? Any extensions/addons modifying the page (e.g. Greasemonkey)? Does this clipping happen when you are logged in?

I believe the problem might be the style attribute for the text inputs.
I don't think "size: 200px" is valid. "width: 200px" might work. When I
change it from size: to width: in firebug, the problem is fixed. I think
perhaps I use a slightly larger font than default, so the default size
of the text inputs is too wide for your layout div.

Can you try with a new Firefox profile to verify that the default font is the problem?

It's not the default font in firefox, but in ubuntu that's the problem.
In system->preferences->font->application font I've chosen "sans 11". If
I set to "sans 10" the problem disappears in firefox. Regardless of
this, however, if you change the style attribute for the text input to
be "width: 200px" instead of the current, *wrong* setting of "size:
200px", the problem will be fixed. There is no such css setting as "size".

I think we need to report this upstream and fix it locally.
