+1 to both posts.. I'll generate a patch this wknd if nobody beats me to it.
Harley, can you show a couple of icon centering options? I think the
options are ..
Center of menu icon at center of drop down icon.
Right - right (same if icon sizes match, try mismatched sizes.
Or maybe text left edge at drop down icon / button left edge.
