This is a KURLLabel. 
The "Accessibility fix for KURLLabel" from Jaroslaw Staniek added a margin
(hence the cropping) and a focus rect (which didn't use to be there either).

Should we make those KURLLabel features optional?
Or should we use something else in khtml's statusbar icon?
  (the code is in KHTMLPart::setPageSecurity).

On one hand I'd be tempted to say it's a bit weird to use KURLLabel for this,
on the other hand, this is a change of behavior in a kdelibs class
between 3.5 and 3.5.1, so if it's not for the better in all cases, maybe it needs
to be settable or even off by default?
