Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

When logging in, I type in my username and password for my machine. It shows up as very large characters in the login text field, larger then the field itself. I am using the default Feisty Herd 5 GDM theme.

This happens with both the 'ati' and 'radeon' drivers. I do not use fglrx.

My bug was ~10,000 bugs before that one. The other one is the duplicate.
