I've found what appears to be the solution, though the actual implementation
of the solution is still a problem.  The extra padding comes in via the
GtkCellRenderer widget's xpad and ypad properties.  Putting a g_object_set()
call to set ypad to 1 after the gtk_cell_renderer_text_new() calls in
makes the appearance much better but I don't like that as a general solution.

It would seem that this property should be settable in my '~/.gtkrc-2.0" file,
I haven't figured out what combination of style/class/widget_class/widget
statements will bring about the change.  I am able to affect expanders and
other some widgets' properties, so I'm not completely clueless here (it just
seems like it sometimes :-).  Of course, now that I've been in mucking with
my gtkrc file - I've lost my emacs keybindings in text widgets (and before
anyone asks, the gtk-key-theme-name didn't change)....

I've posted the question on changing the ypad properties to the and will update this thread with any useful new 
information on the off-chance that someone else is as annoyed by
a couple of pixels of whitespace as I am.
