It's that size because of the width of the time/date.

There appears to be no solution to that yet. =/

Strange, it doesn't seem to be any different for me.

You might see if adjusting how your short time format displays may help.

Notice the spacing on the left/right of the orb and the spacing on the top/bottom is different?

It's not much, but it'd be nice if it were the same on both setups. It's like 10 pixels or so I think(I measured during the 7000 build lol)

Gilly,

It looks like you are using buttons instead of icons in the taskbar.
