You bet. :)

But do you mean sure that it now appears in front of the image, or  
sure that it used to appear behind the image? Anyway, I'm sure of  
both, just not sure when the change occurred.

One way is to have the text left-aligned, set the top, right and  
bottom margins to 0, and then increase the left margin until you're  
happy. But this isn't so good when you want to dynamically change the  
label. So I was hoping to keep the label center-aligned, and adjust  
top and bottom margins.

But finding the right settings is difficult. I get the text centered  
on the button, but part of the icon disappears. Get the icon  
positioned, and the text shifts. It's like one of those comedy  
routines when the guy closes one drawer and another drawer opens.  
(Perhaps I should remove the red nose before I do this.)

Interesting! I found Bugzilla #819, where Tuv mentioned fixing it for  
2.2, although the bug is still marked  "assigned".
