Glad to hear that I'm not the only one.. :) Haven't found the cause or a 
solution yet. Actually, I haven't really looked into this, yet.

Although this is more or less cosmetic issue, I'd still like to fix it. 
As soon as I've sorted out all the more urgent issues I'll try to fix 
this and I'll post info here if/when I found something.
