From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)

Description of problem:
I am using Russian locale (ru_RU.UTF8).
After changing the login screen using gdmsetup the Russian words on the bottom (options etc.) do not show up - I see only buttons but
no text at all.

I don't remember exactly, but at the time when I just installed RedHat from CDs everything was OK.

Letters are missing in all of the login screens.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RH8.0 with Russian locale (or maybe just change it after installation  - I hadn't tried)
2. Run gdmsetup
3. Choose any other login screen instead of BlueCurve (you can change it then back to BlueCurve - the bug will stay)

Actual Results:  Missing russian labels to the right of the buttons at the bottom of the screen

Expected Results:  Russian labels to the right of the buttons at the bottom of the screen
