For the vertical spacing, it _is_ logical. One cell has
an image and whitespace. It is rendered as the image, followed
by whitespace (*below* the image, perhaps due to fixed
width cells?). The other cell on the same row obviously
has to be of the same height. It only contains an image,
and that gets flushed to the bottom, leaving whitespace
on the top.

Now, can we go on with more serious matters in stead of
nitpicking over some pixels of whitespace in a device
independent environment?
