 Possibly interesting data point:  The systems where I see the shifted
 cursor/font corruption all use a DRM/KMS video driver (radeon, intel).
 I recently booted a system that uses the intel driver but is not supported
 by DRM/KMS nor UMS (i82810e-based).
 On this system, the 'xdm' login widget edit fields have the cursor and
 fonts properly centered and does not experience corruption/glitching
 when typing the username or backspacing.
 For the trifecta I'll see about trying a known-working nouveau-equipped
 machine as well as other machines which use non-DRM/KMS video (old
 radeon, rage128, via, SiS, etc.).
