Bug Description

Using alpha3, on VirtualBox using default settings and an 800 x 600 resolution the login prompt does not display right.

My host operating system is gentoo linux, using VirtualBox 1.5.2.

A screenshot can be found at http://lineagle.unixpod.com/xubuntu-login.png Feel free to direct any questions about configuration towards me.

### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified

## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs

## ## Start Default Options ##
## default kernel options
## default kernel options for automagic boot options
## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
## kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
# kopt=root=UUID=78c01d1f-f4b6-46bf-b735-a6c3e8caa1a6 ro

## Setup crashdump menu entries
## e.g. crashdump=1
# crashdump=0

## default grub root device
## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
# groot=(hd0,0)

## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. alternative=true
## alternative=false
# alternative=true

## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
## e.g. lockalternative=true
## lockalternative=false
# lockalternative=false

## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
## alternatives
## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
# defoptions=quiet splash

## should update-grub lock old automagic boot options
## e.g. lockold=false
## lockold=true
# lockold=false

## Xen hypervisor options to use with the default Xen boot option
# xenhopt=

## Xen Linux kernel options to use with the default Xen boot option
# xenkopt=console=tty0

## altoption boot targets option
## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
## altoptions=(recovery) single
# altoptions=(recovery mode) single

## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
## alternative kernel options
## e.g. howmany=all
## howmany=7
# howmany=all

## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
## e.g. memtest86=true
## memtest86=false
# memtest86=true

## should update-grub adjust the value of the default booted system
## can be true or false
# updatedefaultentry=false

## should update-grub add savedefault to the default options
## can be true or false
# savedefault=false

Installed from daily-live 2-23-08 & updated.

Also have this issue with a thinkpad r50/radeon 7500/1024x768 resolution, although it is not as pronounced. The language & session buttons/text are not as far out of the box, but it still looks out of place. Looks like issue is resolution related, as I also had this issue while testing 2-21-08 within virtualbox (640x480 resolution). Note that my xorg.conf was empty (barebones file, no device specific settings) after installation.

This issue still appears present on the new xubuntu login screen artwork. Installed from xubuntu-alternate daily (3-25-08 iirc) and I noticed this issue on both 1024x768 and 1280x1024 resolutions. Note that this is an installation run on actual machines, not in virtualbox.
