Slim - Default Theme vs Slackware-Black

I'm trying out slim - the login replacement for gdm/kdm/xdm. I find that when I use the special supplied Slackware theme, I can't see the cycling of the session names as I repeatedly hit F1. But when I use the default theme they show up just fine. Is there some special tweak to /etc/slim.conf that will make the session names visible using the Slackware theme?

OK. The problem is that slackware-black's slim.theme file assumes more screen acreage than my EeePC 900A supplies. So the F1 session IDs were apparently showing up somewhere off-screen. Tweaking the input_panel_y parameter from 80% to 65% took up enough slack to pull the session IDs back onto the screen.
