I'm going to give you a tip, Tom.
You may have seen a split second painting issue in the start panel when going from normal mode to expanded (recent prog) mode. The graphics "jump" slightly at the bottom of the right hand side just as it expands.
Here is the fix: On the right hand side, expanded start menu section, set the bottom text margin to 0 (you have it at 2 px now)
I'm writing this here rather than sending you a PM so that others may benefit from this.
