As you can see in the definition of the light-right-arrow bitmap I sent
earlier, I already moved the image of this arrow on the original Miles'
definition 2 pixels to the left to fit into 9 pixel width. Perhaps the
same result could be achieved when I replace 11 by nil.

Looks good to me. I guess this can be done with a new customization option?
