Ads More Indented Since Arrow Change?

Are the ads more indented since the change in arrows?

I've noticed that the arrows at the bottom of the ads are farther out to the left than the links to the ads. This draws the eye to the arrows more and I believe lets many people know that what they are looking at is an ad. Take a look at the way the ads used to look.

<link removed - no screen shots allowed>

and the way they look now.

The links are indented further in than the arrows. This causes the ads not to line up with my content text in a natural way like it used to.

Is it just me or did this change when they made the arrows darker?

Google is always testing new layouts, doesn't surprise me of a moderate layout change.
