I don't know for sure, but your problem may be the font changes between Windows XP and Windows 7.  By default, buttons have boolean text centered in the middle of the button.  Even if the there is no text, the button will still resize with font sizes.  To prevent this from happening, right click the button to select the properties and deselect the option to center the text.  If you have disabled showing text, you will need to enable it, deselect centering, then disable text again.
