Oh hells yes.

So there are a couple of ways we can approach this:
1) make the face browser shorter
2) hide the face browser
3) show the plain greeter in 800x600 or lower
4) add a one off hack to show the plain greeter in 800x600 or lower if the theme
is currently "FlyingHigh"
1) actually works pretty well. If you take ~50 pixels off or so then it fits
pretty exactly in 800x600. The problem is the reflect is attached to the center
window, so if you make the list shorter then the reflection floats higher than
it should. We could probably fix that with some theme tweaks.
if we go with 2) and hide the face browser then we need to hide the reflection
too because of the problem mentioned above. That means we need to extend the
theme format, probably a new <show/> conditional ala <show min_height=1027
if we go with 3) then I'm going to get bug reports people being upset that gdm
no longer supports their carefully crafted low resolution themes.
So 2 seems like the right way to go, but I didn't get it done today. It's more
of a bug fix than a feature, so I can probably do it post-feature freeze, but if
that doesn't pan out, then we'll just have to go with 4, I guess.
I think the best option is 2. too - agree it can be done post-feature-freeze.
2 sounds right to me too.
Okay, I've built the fix into
I haven't incorporated the changes into the new theme yet, however.

Can you share a screenshot @ 800x600 please? Thanks.
for those reading this report later, I just brought David to my cube instead of
taking a screenshot.
