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.

Yes.  At this point, you must update everything that depends on pango
(and probably glib20 as well).  Your best bet is to go to
http://www.FreeBSD.org/gnome and read the upgrade instructions.

If you're running a 5.3-BETA, you can get the latest OOo packages from
your local FreeBSD FTP mirror after you complete the 2.6 upgrade.
