Public bug reported:

Affects: gdm (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Messages from gdm on the login screen have no line wrap, so beginning
and end are in some cases not visible.

Example: Wrong passwort message in German language does not fit on the
screen in 1024*768 screen resolution.

Looks very unprofessional and makes Ubuntu hard to use.

Seen in Dapper, might also occur in all other releases.
