Description

On Mac, the window bottom looks a mess right now; with the task bar visible, the
taskbar is a little taller than the grow box. With it hidden, the status bar
(which is now at the bottom of the window) is not tall enough, and is again
misaligned with the grow box.

I agree with the design statement however I am not sure I agree with forcing it
to be a fixed height. The height (as with all XUL elements) is determined by its
contents. So if users choose to have a different font as their main UI font e.g.
by means of selecting a skin, the status bar as well as task bar should resize
accordingly. What we can do is adjust the height to be 15px with the default
fonts chosen by using appr. padding, but we cannot force it to stay at that
height at all times.

So I've made updates to the progressbar images to make them more mac-like, at 
least in the mac classic skin.  I'm waiting to branch before checking them in.  
Also, no matter what size the text is in the status bar, the Mac progress bar 
ahould always be the same size, because it's always the same size in the mac OS 
(which is actually 10px in height not counting 2px borders).  So I'm affixing a 
max-height on the progressmeter, to maintain the Mac native flavor.

The status bar indeed looks better now. It is still 1px too tall.
I wouldn't want to appear too picky, but the status bar is still 1px too high.

To fix, change border-top of statusbar
(...:Chrome:skins:classic:global:skin:global.css line 126) to
border-top: 1px solid #000000;
