gdm theme is suboptimal on multiple monitors

That "Welcome to Debathena" is split across the monitors is the most glaring bit. Possibly the little infobox at the bottom right identifying the machine's version should also be on the primary monitor. The actual login dialog is correctly centered on the primary monitor.

I think this is Hard(tm), because AFAICT, Xinerama and friends present multiple monitors as a single GdkScreen?, so I think we're SOL. Someone who cares and has access to a broken setup should go run python, import gtk, and tell me what gtk.gdk.display_get_default().get_n_screens() says.

It helps to read docs that aren't full of lies. Done in r25579/80 for gdm-config. I still need to do this for lightdm-config.

Done in r25655 for lightdm-config.

I look forward to being asked to support iPad geometry and resolution.

This got fixed forever ago for lightdm, and I have seen it working in the SIPB office. I don't know if it's still fixed for gdm, and don't care, because gdm.
