Actually, I have to disagree here.

(1) showstopper has a lot to do with 'look'. showstopper is all about
visibility and user impact, and particularly about impact on new users
trying to assess GNOME. 'look' is a huge factor in that. 

(2) this is a bug that has a /very/ low probability of being caught in
our testing process (very few new accounts get created against the beta)
so the relationship between 'it is important' and 'it was found and
fixed' is virtually nil. 

So, I'd like to see it go in, given that even I'm able to verify that it
is correct.
