Bug#524776: libgtk2.0-0: GTK 2.16 introduces too much padding in GtkMenuItem

Package: libgtk2.0-0
Version: 2.16.1-2
Severity: normal

GtkMenuItems have too much padding at their ends since the upgrade to GTK 2.16.
I didn't find a setting for this in the GTK Reference Manual, so I filed this bug.
Downgrading to 2.14 shows the previous look, so I made screenshots:
  - Before with Gtk 2.14
  - After with Gtk 2.16
On small monitors this is a waste of screen estate, is it possible to revert back ?
