I would also like to add that I am having similar problem with my
install of wine-20050725, where the Toolbar buttons of an application
called DietPower are incorrectly sized smaller (about 26pix compared to
normal size of about 37pix). The Toolbutton Images are sized correctly
resulting in a mess.  Version 20050628 and previous versions don't have
this problem. Would it help to post this on the bug-tracker ?
