Please file a bug report against gdm and/or gdm-themes.

apt-get install reportbug
reprotbug gdm

Should be the way to go.

Posting to this list is not helpful in trying to get issues solved, filing bug
report is. Most often than not, those who should be fixing or have a clue
about said bug are not reading debian-powerpc, and expecting others to forward
the bug to the right place is not so nice.
