Windows 7: Locked Taskbar and Custom Toolbar

Windows 7 Ultimate
Locked Taskbar and Custom Toolbar

I was wondering if someone knew why part of the first icon on my custom toolbars displays when I lock the taskbar (see pic - I've highlighted the partial icons in red). I've tried sqeezing them as close together before I lock the taskbar, but that's doesn't solve the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I've also had that problem. The solution seems to be to remove the toolbar and add it back while the taskbar is still locked. Ho Hum!!

That definitely works, but you are limited to having the custom toolbar on the right side of the taskbar (left of the time/date and notification area) - that is if you have it set on the bottom of your desktop. Any workaround?
