Bug Description

When the user enters an invalid username, an error message is displayed next to the field. When this message is displayed, empty space is added above and below the username field changing the geometry of the main window.

See enclosed screenshot.

The fix here is to switch to GtkGrid, which does sensible height-for-width geometry management.

ubiquity (2.9.20) precise; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Restore old fallback code in case /cdrom/casper/filesystem.size doesn't
    exist (LP: #557388).
  * Fix some more uses of deprecated python-apt APIs.
  * ubiquity-dm: Try openbox after openbox-lubuntu (LP: #888107).
  * Thomson SA is now called Technicolor SA (LP: #856992).
  * Limit maximum length of username editing widgets to 32 (LP: #831319).
  * UTF-8-encode the syslog message when a geoname lookup fails, since it
    might include non-ASCII characters entered by the user (LP: #928891).
  * Run test suite under xvfb-run by default when running it from the
    command line. 'tests/run --no-xvfb' inhibits this behaviour for cases
    where it's useful to see the UIs constructed by the test suite.
  * Stop manually inserting newlines in hostname and username errors. GTK+
    3 seems to do a reasonable job of wrapping these by itself now.
  * Port the user page from GtkTable to GtkGrid, so that we get sensible
    height-for-width geometry management (LP: #830933).
  * Internationalise hostname and username validation errors (LP: #784825).

  [ Mario Limonciello ]
  * Have two separate failsafe attempts for 'fbdev' and 'vesa'. It's
    possible that /dev/fb0 will exist but be backed by a VGA framebuffer
    causing X to exit non-zero.

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * Use the Xubuntu wallpaper when available. (LP: #936572)
  * Detect bogus DNS servers and ignore them. (LP: #760884)
  * Automatic update of included source packages: base-installer
    1.122ubuntu5, choose-mirror 2.39ubuntu4.
