[Chameleon] textbutton label vertical align

I just came into this conversation at the end here, but I just wanted to
add an observation in case it has implications here...
When I moved my chameleon apps from windows over to linux (Red Hat) I
had to change my text button shared resource to add a nudge of 4. The
lables were all offset upwards.
Why would this happen across different machines?
