I noticed that when you use long names for the button in the admin dashboard, the background positioning is messed up. Please see the attachment.

It's only on the active menu item: http://grab.by/4QF2

We have have a new background image, the image has and border-bottom-color #AAA (the image, not via CSS). If the menu name is longer we doesnt' repeat the image, we use the border-bottom color, in this case its #AAA (the dark grey).
Solution: Create an image that's a gradient (with no border at the bottom) and then set the background color to the lowest color in the image. That way the gradient would appear to continue if the text overflows.

I've seen this #aaa color during load times sometime while the image is still getting rendered.

Assigning to JohnONolan for review; I'll send him a note.
