I did get them to line up but had to play with bitmapAlignment
leaving it at default they were unaligned and making them both
btmapAlignment = 1 // Left
seemed to align them. Something not quite right with alignment.
Maybe its dNavigation.dll that threw them off. I haven't played with them
since I used Resource Hacker to extract them.
Since I'm still using 2.62/2.80 in production cause 12 still isn't ready for
prime time, I prefer working with individual bitmaps.

I haven't had time yet to dig too deeply but one thing I did notice was
that when I used the graphics for the pushbutons from dNavigation.dll
the two arrows didn't quite line up.  When you use the individual .png
files they line up exactly.
