Borders and Icons

Apparently, icons are drawn in front of the objects they belong to.
This surprises me a little, because, just like you, I would epxect
icons to be cut off by borders. The problem becomes even more
apparent, if one adds a shadow to the button. The icon is drawn in
front of the border and the shadow.
Perhaps this is a bug. Actually, I believe it is, but it might have a
very long history. I wonder what others have to say about this?
In the mean time, drawing a border on top of your button seems to be
your only option.
