The problem might have been escaleted then, but there defenitely was propblems already in panther. It's ridiculous that you can't change that property your self. With the 12 inch screen the current spacing doesn't even match, it leaves an awkward gap to the left side of the screen when the right side icons nicely follow the edge. Also the 10pt minimum text size is kind of restricting, not everyone has bad eye sight.
