gdm 188.8.131.52-6 seems to have introduced a smaller font size.

Note, gdm.conf is now noreplace so you won't get the fix by default.
I don't like the noreplace thing. What if we have a security problem in
gdm.conf? Plus there are lots of things that will just break on upgrade with
But not really related to this bug, except that when testing you need to move
.rpmnew over the old file.
'noreplace' confirmed removed with gdm-220.127.116.11-10. In addition, confirmed that
the path is back in.
