I see that you and Mitch moved forward regardless.
There are some deeper problems with those buttons (why are they there,
allt the time, so prominently?), the ones in the layer dialog excepted.
I would love to get this un-relief'ed look for most controls that are
displayed permanently, would be a relief (no pun...) for everyone.
Mitch and I tried to find a way last year. Alas, no cigar...
