TreeView DragIcon Huge

In VB project using TreeView control and imlTreeViewIcons ImageList, I do

tvTreeView.DragIcon = imlTreeViewIcons.ListImages(5).ExtractIcon

in the MouseMove event. The icon 5 in the ImageList is size 16, colors 16. When dragging, the dragicon appears really HUGE.
How can I have it displayed at its normal size (16x16 pixels)?

(using CreateDragImage is not really an option because I need to change the DragIcon repeatedly in DragOver)

I have never found a proper solution to this but there are two others that may be of help:

- draw 16x16 images in a 32x32 bitmap and make the outer edge transparent
- create a separate 32x32 imagelist and populate it with the same icons.. then set the DragIcon property to the icon from 32x32 imagelist

good luck!
