BuildID:    2001120806

When I move the mouse onto the back button, the green arrow ("classic" skin)
shifts a pixel or two to the right.  Moving onto the dropdown part of the button
shifts it back to the position it is in when the mouse is not on the button at
all.  The forward button does not exhibit this same behavior, so I'm assuming
one is wrong.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Move mouse onto back button
2. Move mouse onto dropdown part
3. Move mouse back into the back button

Actual Results:  The arrow appears to shift to the right

Expected Results:  No shift, or the same shifting with the forward button.

Still present in 2002012208, but different.  It works now when I go over the
dropdown arrow, but if I move the mouse to the grippy bar, sometimes the arrow
shifts left and sometimes it doesn't.

I downloaded 20020404 but the mail client is *way* too buggy.  I'm still seeing
it in 2002031808 ...

Yes, still present in 2002040410 ... if you move your mouse over the grippy bar,
the arrow, and the pulldown, and move it back and forth, back and forth, you
will (I hope it's not just me) see the green arrow jump one pixel to the left. 
It almost looks like the dropdown arrow is resetting it to the correct position
but the grippy bar pulls it off by one.  This seems a pretty reliable way to
reproduce it.

If I move the mouse slowly over the three bars and outside the window (which
then loses focus) it will jump a pixel left and then jump right back, maybe once
every 100 times I do it.  If I do it quickly, however, it jumps and gets stuck
maybe every other time or more often.

Works for me on 1.0RC1.

On mouseover, the back arrow is simply colored with a slightly lighter green. 
Absolutely no shifting in any direction.  Moving the mouse away repaints the
arrow without any movement.

Please try the latest release or a nightly build.

Build 2002042210 looks good on the computer here (Linux 2.4.18).  No shifting
noticeable.  I'll have a look on the original machine in a couple more days...
