Buttons off the screen

Picture of problem
Description of problem:
When entering up the firstboot anaconda installer component, the buttons near the bottom of the window are positioned off the screen. This may be due to multiple monitors.
This is better than in FC16, where the anaconda installer tried to span multiple monitors. However it'll still be confusing to users, who won't know how to alt-drag the window upwards to get to the buttons.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC 17 Alpha
First boot only runs once.
No buttons visible by default.
Buttons should be usable.
What window manager did you install?
metacity, kwin, xfwm4, or openbox?
This is Fedora 17 Alpha, and I didn't customize the install at all. So the window manager installed would be mutter (ie: gnome-shell).
Stef on irc said he has multiple monitors of slightly different dimensions. This means the X screen size is probably larger than the monitor firstboot is displayed on. The code has this:
self._y_size = gtk.gdk.screen_height()
So that would explain this. It probably needs to query the dimensions of the appropriate monitor instead of the overarching screen.
