Description of problem:
This system has dual monitors managed by nvidia Twinview. At login the gdm dialog is centered in the primary monitor as expected. The system mouse is centered between the two screens and not over the gdm dialog. The dialog does not have focus and pressing Alt-U (or U or Control-U) to put focus on the user name text box does not work. If I move the mouse over the dialog box (no click, just move) then the dialog box will respond to all keys including navigation key strokes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type a key on keyboard to unblank screen.
2. Try to type username or Alt-U to bring focus to username text box
Cannot log in.
Focus should go to dialog box when Alt-U or other navigation key is pressed regardless of where the mouse is.

Dual monitors with TwinView.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
