Okay, I have not yet bugzilled yet, and this is not as major as other  
issues... and there is a fine workaround for now, just so everyone  
knows, I have just been working with this and if to fix the "stuck  
over" button problem, just set the hoverIcon to 0 (to disable it),  
set the armedIcon to the same as the icon and swap out the icon  
number manually on mouseEnter, this works perfectly.
