Bug Description

Binary package hint: software-center

Ubuntu Software Centre 3.1.22, Ubuntu Natty alpha 3

The Back and Forward buttons, and the pathbutton, are noticably taller than in version 3.0.

They should be exactly the same height as the search field.

I've noticed that this border space also causes a minor usability problem in that the clickable area for the navigation buttons does not include the additional border space inside the button. The result is that I sometimes find myself having to click a second time because my first click, although visually inside the button area, is not far enough inside to actually activate the button.
