Problem here is that we use our own UI class derived from BasicToggleButtonUI <-- BasicButtonUI. But it misses important
code/features from SynthButtonUI. Possible solution: Derive our own subclass for Nimbus L&F from SynthButtonUI.
Unfortunately it means some code copy/paste from our SlidingButtonUI to new subclass.

Now we have NimbusSlidingButtonUI (NB) <-- SlidingButtonUI (NB) <-- BasicToggleButtonUI (Swing).

Fix would create NimbusSlidingButtonUI (NB) <-- SynthButtonUI (Swing) with some code copied from SlidingButtonUI to

In this issue problem is that border is not set to button so button content looks clipped.

Unfortunately javax.swing.plaf.synth.SynthButtonUI is not public class.... so my suggestion is not possible. I will ask
on nimbus mailing list what is preferred solution.
