Bug Description

Dialogue boxes appearing with the installer for Lubuntu 12.10 Desktop build of Sept 7 2012 present with the header only and an outline of where the rest of the dialogue box would appear.

This also occurs in other places such as Ubuntu-bug run from terminal.

The attached pictures show what is happening.

The computer is an eMac G4 (1.12 Ghz) with 1 Gig RAM and 80 Gig hard drive. Was attempting a full disk install to the internal hard drive.
