A related curiosity:

Button[Null, ImageSize -> 0]
Button[Null, ImageSize -> 1]
Button[Null, ImageSize -> 2]

On my Windows XP PC, the actual apparent width of these buttons are:

10 pixels
9 pixels
8 pixels

Manipulate[Button[Null, ImageSize -> w], {w, 1, 100}]

On my Windows XP PC, Button[.]s are always at least 8 pixels wide. On my
friend's Mac, they are always at least 68 pixels wide. 68 seems a lot. Is
there any way for Mathematica to force buttons on Mac OS X to render smaller
than that?
