Enable tab-bar-mode, move the mouse pointer over the "+" button used to
create new tabs.  Once the button is highlighted by displaying a relief,
move the pointer back outside the tab bar.

While most the relief around part of the button will be cleared, part of
the left side of the relief that surrounded the "+" button when it was
highlighted will be retained.

To the best of my knowledge, this also appears on Emacs 28.

FWIW, I cannot reproduce this, neither in Emacs 27.2 nor in Emacs 28.

Maybe this is window-system dependent?

Alternatively, if you have some "optimization" features enabled in
your video drivers, disable them and try again.

I see the problem with Emacs 27 and 28 built with Gtk+ and with 28 built
with no toolkit (I don't have a built of 27 with no toolkit).  It looks
like a remnant pixel on the lower left, see attached screenshot.  It
disappears as soon as the window size changes.

Indeed, that is the problem I reported.  Thanks for providing an image
example.

Perhaps.  I have only observed it on X-Windows.

I don't believe that is the problem here, as I have no optimization
features enabled, but it is still reproducible on a build of Emacs 27.2
made with -O0 -g3 running in Xephyr.

It does seem to be window-system dependent.  In fact, the relief
actually renders differently on MS-Windows as compared to how it renders
on X.

I have attached two images detailing the difference, and additionally,
an image of the bug on X.

Thanks, but which one is which, and which one(s) show the bug?

Are the descriptions not visible for you?  If so, the following should
help:

"Screenshot from 2021-09-06 20-27-24" depicts the relief drawn on
MS-Windows.  (Which does not exhibit the bug)

"Screenshot from 2021-09-06 20-28-53" depicts the relief drawn on
X-windows.

"Screenshot from 2021-09-06 20-30-11" depicts the bug on X-windows.

Thanks.

What descriptions? I only see the file names.

Thanks.

I think I understand what is going on there: the definitions of the
button margins and relief are incorrect.  I show below the code which
sets up the tool-bar buttons to display correctly both when the mouse
is over a button and when the mouse moves off the button.  As you see,
there's a subtle dance with the computed values of the image margins
and relief, depending on whether the button is selected or not and
whether auto-raise-tool-bar-buttons is on or off.  The computed values
of the margin and the relief are then injected into the image spec of
the button.

By contrast, the corresponding spec of the tab-bar buttons specifies a
fixed margin, and specifies no relief at all:

    (add-text-properties 0 (length tab-bar-new-button)
                         `(display (image :type xpm
                                          :file "tabs/new.xpm"
                                          :margin (2 . 0)
                                          :ascent center))

Moreover, the value of :margin here is inconsistent with the value of
tab-bar-button-margin.  And there's no code there which attempts to do
the same job for tab-bar buttons' margins and relief as xdisp.c does
for tool-bar buttons (see below).

I've fixed tab-bar.el to request the same margin as specified by
tab-bar-button-margin, and I also fixed the code in w32term.c and
xterm.c which used the corresponding tool-bar values when tab-bar
values should have been used.  This improved the situation to some
extent, but we still leave behind an artifact when the mouse moves off
the tab-bar button: a 1-pixel vertical line.  I think that's because
there's no relief definition in the image, but the value of
tab-bar-button-relief is non-zero (and xterm.c/w32term.c use that
non-zero value when they redraw the buttons).

I hope the information here will allow Juri and people who really
understand the meaning of an image margin and relief (Alan?) fix the
rest of the problem.

Here's the code which sets up margins and relief on tool-bar buttons:

      /* Display the tool-bar button pressed, or depressed.  */
      plist = Fcopy_sequence (XCDR (image));

      /* Compute margin and relief to draw.  */
      relief = (tool_bar_button_relief >= 0
		? min (tool_bar_button_relief,
		       min (INT_MAX, MOST_POSITIVE_FIXNUM))
		: DEFAULT_TOOL_BAR_BUTTON_RELIEF);
      hmargin = vmargin = relief;

      if (RANGED_FIXNUMP (1, Vtool_bar_button_margin,
			   INT_MAX - max (hmargin, vmargin)))
	{
	  hmargin += XFIXNAT (Vtool_bar_button_margin);
	  vmargin += XFIXNAT (Vtool_bar_button_margin);
	}
      else if (CONSP (Vtool_bar_button_margin))
	{
	  if (RANGED_FIXNUMP (1, XCAR (Vtool_bar_button_margin),
			       INT_MAX - hmargin))
	    hmargin += XFIXNAT (XCAR (Vtool_bar_button_margin));

	  if (RANGED_FIXNUMP (1, XCDR (Vtool_bar_button_margin),
			       INT_MAX - vmargin))
	    vmargin += XFIXNAT (XCDR (Vtool_bar_button_margin));
	}

      if (auto_raise_tool_bar_buttons_p)
	{
	  /* Add a `:relief' property to the image spec if the item is
	     selected.  */
	  if (selected_p)
	    {
	      plist = Fplist_put (plist, QCrelief, make_fixnum (-relief));
	      hmargin -= relief;
	      vmargin -= relief;
	    }
	}
      else
	{
	  /* If image is selected, display it pressed, i.e. with a
	     negative relief.  If it's not selected, display it with a
	     raised relief.  */
	  plist = Fplist_put (plist, QCrelief,
			      (selected_p
			       ? make_fixnum (-relief)
			       : make_fixnum (relief)));
	  hmargin -= relief;
	  vmargin -= relief;
	}

      /* Put a margin around the image.  */
      if (hmargin || vmargin)
	{
	  if (hmargin == vmargin)
	    plist = Fplist_put (plist, QCmargin, make_fixnum (hmargin));
	  else
	    plist = Fplist_put (plist, QCmargin,
				Fcons (make_fixnum (hmargin),
				       make_fixnum (vmargin)));
	}

Thanks.  Interestingly enough, I don't see a 1-pixel vertical line when
the highlight is cleared, but it could be an issue with my display.

Try a larger default font, as in

   emacs -Q -fn "Your Font-20"

where "Your Font" is the font you get by default in Emacs.  I only see
the problem clearly when I use such a large font.

AFAIK the margin and relief are entirely handled by the term code and
don't really have anything to do with the image itself. I expect
that's why this is an OS specific problem.

This actually looks slightly like a bug we have with normal images on
the NS port, where if an image is replaced with a slightly smaller one
part of the original image *may* not be cleared. I've never managed to
work out why it happens.

The code to deal with that is identical in xterm.c and w32term.c.

Can you perhaps help us understand the purpose and semantics of the
delicate dance in the xdisp.c code I posted regarding images on the
tool-bar buttons?  AFAIU, the xterm/w32term code was written to
reflect that, and the tab-bar code is simply a copy of the tool-bar
code, except that the image spec is defined entirely in Lisp, instead
of being dynamically redefined on the fly by the C code in the display
engine.  So we need to understand the meaning of the margins and the
relief settings and their relation to the button being "selected" as
well as to the value of auto-raise-tool-bar-buttons, in order to do in
Lisp the same thing.  Because xterm/w32term rely on this logic to
clear the area when the mouse pointer moves off the button.

It's similar, yes.  But in the case in point the code which clears the
area is working well for tool-bar buttons, and we don't change the
image dimensions for the tab bar buttons.

Thanks.

I think all it's doing is ensuring the total area the image takes up
is the same whether there's a relief or not.

The total width = image + relief width + margin width, so if you
reduce the size of the relief you have to increase the size of the
margin by the same amount to make sure it takes up the same amount of
space and doesn't move.

As far as I can see, what's happening here is that the margin is
pushing the relief one pixel into the separator to the left, so I
suspect that's why it's not being cleared.

I'm somewhat surprised that it's not pushing the right hand side one
pixel too far in the other direction and causing it to not be cleared
either, but maybe that's just chance.

The change below fixes it here, but I've not made sure it does the
right thing with different sized margins and so on.

Thanks, I installed this, since it fixes at least the default case.

Thanks, I really appreciate your help.  After seeing the result
of your patch, one question that came up is whether it's possible
not to change the previously used dimensions?  With enlarged height
and width, now the buttons are not vertically aligned:

Is this a screenshot of a tab bar or of a tab line?

Sorry, actually this question was addressed to Eli
for the commit with the same subject but different hash:
db74a93659 that contains such changes:

Tab bar.  And the change was caused by your commit db74a93659.

Then I don't understand the two horizontally-adjacent images.  What
are they? two separate frame?  If they are two frames, then where are
the frame decorations?  In short, I don't understand what am I seeing
there, and how did you get this display.

This is to make the code do what the variable's documentation says.
Without that change, the images were sized using :margin '(2 . 0)',
but the C code used the value of tab-bar-button-margin, a simple
scalar, to place the image and clear its background.  The way to
affect the image dimensions is by changing the value of
tab-bar-button-margin, not by hard-coding the margin in the image
properties.

And also, when you say "buttons are not vertically aligned", what
exactly do you mean?  Not aligned with what?

These are two separate images that show the changed tab dimensions
before changes when :margin was (2 . 0), and after changes
when now :margin is 4.

Now buttons are not aligned to the baseline, and thus are
not centered vertically anymore.

This patch restores the original tab dimensions, while also keeps fixed
the reported problem of mouse face not clearing entirely:

Isn't that evidence that something is wrong in how the labels and
buttons are displayed?  The margin of 4 is symmetrical, so why aren't
the buttons centered?  And why do we need to use zero vertical margin
to get them centered?  This seems to mean we have some hidden problem
here.

Sorry, this cannot be right.  tab-bar-button-margin is documented and
used as determining the button margins completely:

      doc: /* Margin around tab-bar buttons in pixels.
  If an integer, use that for both horizontal and vertical margins.
  Otherwise, value should be a pair of integers `(HORZ . VERT)' with
  HORZ specifying the horizontal margin, and VERT specifying the
  vertical margin.  */);

We cannot arbitrarily decide that the value matters only for the
horizontal margin, but not for the vertical one.  When the user or a
Lisp program change the value of that variable, they should get the
effect they expect based on the documentation.  Also, the code in
xterm.c/w32term.c clearly behaves according to the doc string of
tab-bar-button-margin, which is yet another reason not to do what you
propose.  And what will happen with your code if tab-bar-button-margin
is set to a cons cell, as allowed by the documentation above?

If we want the default value of tab-bar-button-margin to be a cons
cell, let's change the default value to be a cons cell, it's not more
complicated than setting it to a scalar, even in C.  But tab-bar.el
should use in its image specs the exact value of
tab-bar-button-margin, it cannot decide to change it behind the back
of the caller.

I tried a cons cell, but it looks ugly for buttons other than the close button.
OTOH, margin 1 looks nice for all buttons:

Btw, I don't see much sense in keeping the
DEFAULT_TAB_BAR_BUTTON_MARGIN macro: it's used in one place only,
AFAICT, so we could simply have it there literally.

So pushed to master.

I thought about this too, but it will break the symmetry with
DEFAULT_TOOL_BAR_BUTTON_MARGIN and DEFAULT_TOOL_BAR_BUTTON_RELIEF when
DEFAULT_TAB_BAR_BUTTON_MARGIN will be used in more places.

The *_RELIEF variables are used in more than one place, so it makes
sense to have them.

As for the "symmetry" with the tool bar: it doesn't really exist,
since you do almost everything related to the tab-bar button display
in Lisp, not in C.  That "symmetry" is very misleading, so much so
that the other day it cost me 2 hours of frustrating debugging before
I realized why the image parameters I see in w32term.c are so
different from what Vtab_bar_button_margin says it should be.
