Compare 1.7.0.png to 1.7.2.png. These little gaps are new.
Definitely new since 1.7.0, and while I haven't been using Rosegarden for much
more than spot examples lately, I feel in my gut I would have picked up on
this fairly quickly, and I don't expect this behavior is very old.
I wonder if it's intentional?
If anyone knows this to be an intentional change, then please state the
justification, so I can understand it. Otherwise, I'll give it a few days
for discussion before I start reverse merging to try to pinpoint when this
happened, and see about undoing this. Without a convincing explanation, it
just looks like some unintended consequence of some other work. Probably
Heikki's work, for no other reason than that he has been the most active for
this most recent cycle.
