Just my two cents to the design: I think the corners of the outer
rectangle should be more rounded than those of the the inner one (when
they are same it seems a little weird to me) like in my sixth mockup [1]
and maybe the scrollbar would be better if it was in Nodoka instead of
Clearlooks (so that the look would be more consistent with the rest of
the artwork before and after the gdm). Didn't installed it yet, but the
screenshot looks good so far (I'll try it in real probably tomorrow) :)
