gdm FedoraFlyingHigh artwork looks poor on widescreen display: aspect ratio issue?

Description of problem:
Am running rawhide (post F7T4) on an HP Pavillion dv1100 laptop. Regular X
resolution when logged in is 1280x768.
The gdm login screen looks poor: the FedoraFlyingHigh theme looks like it's
being displayed with the wrong aspect ratio: everything is scretched vertically.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Appears to only affect initial login. Once logged in as my normal account,
upong using the user switcher, the gdm screen looks fine.
OK: it doesn't seem to be the background: it's the user icons: they're
stretched vertically, to an extent that it looks noticably wrong.
Reassigning to gdm
can I get a screenshot?
BTW how would I get a screenshot?
In any case, after an update to latest rawhide, this is working much better now:
the login screen is attractive on this laptop; closing RAWHIDE.
I believe the resolution in gdm may now be set up correctly to match the screen
