Well, the first 2 points are definitely bugs (the first is fixed already
in a patch, as I said), but I would consider the lack of ability to
configure the greeter a serious oversight, if not a flat out bug. You're
right that the ugliness and the animation are preference stuff, but
personally, I think the delay due to the animation is serious enough to
be considered a bug, if only in the designer's brain.
"Animation"? What is it really? An attempt at making it look slow and poor
on every machine? After entering a username, the dialog size shrinks in
several visible steps while flickering badly. If that is by design, my
first thought would be that the desiger can't be serious about it.
