YES! it looks perfect at 240x18... thanks Livven for the correction. :)
so how come 240x26 is used by theme makers?

I think because the old taskbar had 26px in height... and, actually, most theme makers did not change the original taskbar image, and thus didn't care for the height of the taskbar.

In fact, MS has also left the softkey-highlight images from the older COM2 WM6.5 builds in their default theme (another legacy :D).
