Bug Description

To reproduce:

    Select Adwaita theme in Appearance.
    Add Applications Menu widget to panel.
    Set it to use a circle icon.


    The top and bottom of the icon are clipped, regardless of how big you make the panel. It consistently removes 2-3 pixels from the top and bottom of the icon.

Screenshots attached, with a Whisker menu icon (which renders correctly) for comparison. Whisker menu is dark blue, Applications Menu is light blue.

I can't confirm the bug with xfce4-panel 4.13.4 (self-built) on cosmic (18.10).
I added a screenshot that shows whiskermenu (on the left, dark blue) and the internal applications menu plugin (light blue, on the right) on a 20px tall panel with Adwaita. Both icons are equally un-clipped.
