JTree custom renderer - the icons are clipped and bunched up in Windows Look and Feel

Hi
I have a JTree with custom renderer.
The icons displayed (non-leaf nodes btw) are 24x24 gifs.
On any Metal LaF the spacing between nodes is fine, but on any Windows LaF,
the spacing seems to ignore the size of the icons and bunches them up to roughly
the size of the text plust a smallgap (about 16 pixels).
A couple of points:
What the dickens is going on here?
How do I get lists and properties of Swing UIDefaults for components like JTree?
Thanks

That's not a solution for me, I need Windows, Metal and other Native LaFs
This one would not have extensions we need (Jidesoft)

Well, no takers for the main question.
This will teach me never to ask 2 questions at once!
I'll just wrap it up
