Ports and Gaim

Hi all,

I upgraded the ports tree and installed a few things, everything went ok untill I installed gaim. As soon as it went in, the menus in gnome went funny, ie the applications menu went to about 2 pixels wide, so I logged out to log back in again hoping that would fix it, unfortunately gdm no has no menus and I can't type anything into the username field etc. So I'm now locked out of gnome/gdm and can't log back in.

The only dependancy that wasn't up to scratch for gaim was pango, so I updated that, now I assume it is this that has buggered gnome.

What is the easiest resolution, upgrade gnome to 2.6? I don't fancy a reinstall of the os, I just compiled open office 1.1.2 from scratch and can't be bothered waiting for that again :o)

Thanks in advance,
