#323 [LXPanel] Taskbar Button Size


In an attempt to prevent the buttons from clipping the icons, the buttons were increased in size. This allowed them to go off screen, which I do not think it the proper behavior. This patch offers a solution to the problem by making the buttons not exceed the icon size and to set the icon size for the buttons to a smaller size to account for the border. If the buttons are set to be flat, then it uses the normal Icon size.

Taskbar Buttons: height of normal icons
Icons in Taskbar Buttons: reduced to prevent the icons from being clipped
Flat Buttons: no change

    I have greatly improved the implementation compared to before, but I had to remove changing icon size for flat buttons because it caused clipping. With this patch, the height of the panel can equal the height of the icons and everything fits, but a better solution for flat buttons is still required. I thought an update was appropriate still yet.
