Dan,

Check out this thread from the list from one year ago:

http://n4.nabble.com/Dynamic-labels-for-buttons-with-oddshaped-icon-images-td337687.html#a337687

It dealt with the very issue you're asking about. In essence, you play  
with the margins of the button to move the label over the icon image.
