Ridiculous Auto-Padding in IE (Win) Submit Buttons


I hope someone has a suggestion to get around one of the nasty "features" coming from Redmond:

Internet Explorer on Windows has some funny logic implemented to add some PADDING to SUBMIT-Buttons (<input type=Submit>) of forms. The Longer the content/text of the VALUE tag is, the more PADDING it adds automagically. Thus we have real ugly looking form buttons on our pages which take up valuable space.
This padding can not (to my knowledge) be set using CSS.

I'd appreciate if anyone knowing of a workaround to get rid of the padding IE is adding could let me know.

Look at the grey buttons in the screenshot below (click on the image for larger display) to get a picture of what i am talking about:
