I am sure there is a Registry edit that would increase the height of the Taskbar buttons as there is for the width of the Taskbar buttons. If I turn off the Quick Launch bar the space beneath the Taskbar buttons goes away.
Taskbar buttons are created within the system using a whole bunch of xml and stylesheets. It probably is just about possible to work your way through the labyrinth but that way madness lies! But you can be sure that no registry edit is going to give you what you want here. The problem with employing Quick Launch is that it's a toolbar which means it carries the baggage of borders and the like so it will always need a bit of extra space. Unless you're prepared to go vertical (and why anybody with a wide screen doesn't is slightly beyond me, I have to confess!) or scrap Quick Launch this is an inconsistency that you're kinda forced to live with.
