LightDM GUI list too long for screen.

I've been looking for a way to solve this for a couple of weeks, and I
hope someone can help me.

I have a number of different GUI's installed on my 13.04 system, (GNOME
classic, GNOME3, LXDE, XFCE, UNITY, XBMC, & more,) I know this is
probably counter productive, but the idea is to use the laptop as a
UBUNTU showcase and be able to show off different GUI's in the hope of
converting people over to our side of the fence ;)

The issue is now there are so many that they no longer fit onto the
logon screen (light display manager) and there is no way to scroll down
to make the lower ones visible. I can use the <Tab> key  to move the
selector down but I have to guess what GUI it ends up on once it has
gone from view.

Can I either get it to scroll as is should IMHO or perhaps move the
starting position for the list up the screen further, or as a last
resort reduce the font size so as it all fits onto screen.

for what it's worth laptop has a 16:10 screen @ 1200x800, and it is an
Acer Aspire 5720 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5250  @ 1.50GHz
Intel graphics chip and 3gb RAM

Thanks in advance
