I presume this is an "interim" change before the official 1.1 rolls out? There is a need to keep the lines as close as they were, both out of estethics and out of the sheer need to keep the sidebar info as cramped as possible (I have MANY sidebars!) to save vertical space. This can seem minor, but I don't see any reason why this had to change in the first place. Please reduce the space between the lines.
