Can't fix Reply buttons not aligned to text

I think what you're seeing here are roughly 1px differences between where the browser decides to lay things out. Combined with the fact that the eye icon is placed a little low, but that would likely be down to how it's exactly defined in the font. If you look at other button icons, you'll see the align better in most cases (covering from above capitals to the descenders).

I have made a very small tweak to the CSS here, though it may not really look much different. Such I'm not sure what to even mark this bug. Can't fix?

I hadn't rolled any changes out when you posted that message (though I have now). However, at 200% zoom, you can see that it has to do with where the icon is laid out in Font Awesome:

(The red box being the space allocated to the icon with a line-height of 1.)

The eye is aligned slightly lower, potentially baseline aligned. (Our icons are slightly larger than the button text.)

I'm led to believe this is one of the types of things they've aimed to resolve in the new icon designs in Font Awesome 5.
