Default F16 clean install issues.

Have been testing an upgrade with F16 on one of my classroom
machines, and ran into some issues. Missing
maximize/minimize/close buttons on windows. Cleaned out a
number of (.*) directories in a guest account then when I started
the vncserver it gave the gnome3 message screen and worked,
but having some other issues so decided to do a full rebuild on
another machine.

Strangely, for the most part the gnome3 seems to work with the
clean install, but the top bar is totally unreadable, and while the
icons and text seem to show up fine in the main window, the text
on the right is sometimes unreadable.

These 20+ classroom machines have very old nvidia Geoforce
5200 cards with only 128M of Ram.

Haven't tried the vnc access on the clean install yet, but have
other machines that it seems to work fine on with a clean install,
but they have higher end video cards.

With the default settings, there is a context-menu for the window title bar
instead.

A couple of updates after following a lot of web links.

The vnc connection works fine using a pull down menus instead
of the fancier gnome3.

The local login using the gnome3 and the top bar is unreadable as
shown in the earlier image, BUT I found that I could get it to
become readable by using gnome-tweak-tool and changing the
text scaling factor to 1.5 or above. Thought that was a fix, but after
logining out and back in, it is again unreadable but running
gnome-tweak-tool shows it is still set to 1.5, but changing it again
will make it work, so something is resetting this. So, I hoping there
is another tool that might be able to reset the setting and have it
handle logouts.

That still leaves the sign in screen with the top bar as unreadable
and the fedora icon is also not displayed correctly.
