This is weird. If you set the margins using a single number ("set the 
margins to 20",) you get what you describe above. If you set the margins 
using a series of four numbers ("set the margins to 5,10,20,10"), it 
only uses the first one.

BUT: If you set the margins using a single number, which forces the text 
label upward, and then you set the topmargin separately -- voila -- the 
icon moves down.

And THEN: thinking that setting the bottomMargin separately would then 
move the text upward again, I did that. And both the icon and text moved 
up together.

At any rate, it looks like you can get good results by doing this:

   set the margins to 20
   set the topmargin to 25

Or something similar.
