Change Advanced User Settings Window is taller than my screen and I can't press 'ok'.

Bug Description

From the 'User Settings' dialog box, I press the Advanced Settings button. This displays the 'Change Advanced User Settings' dialog box. This dialog box is taller than my screen and I can't navigate to the 'o.k.' button on the 'User Privileges' tab.

The work-around is to put the dialog box in one of the upper desktop windows, then switch desktop window to the lower one and press enter.

The obvious information to provide is the size of your screen in pixels...

Anyway, gnome-system-tools is deprecated, replaced by the new GNOME control center, so I don't think this will be fixed, sorry?

I am also meeting with this issue on Ubuntu Precise. This is very difficult to deal with and it would be nice if it could be fixed.
