I have no problem with putting some text in the button, but I can't load
your icon (just sits there trying to connect and eventually times out).

However, assuming you've put the text in the pixmap itself, that's a
definite no-no, as it makes it impossible to localise it to different
languages without creating a new button for each language (not the right
approach, IMO).
