WebApp Icon has a strange white border

The HTML page contains a link to the webapp icon:
    <link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/path/icon.png">     

In the browser I selected "Add to Home Screen".
The above icon is added to the Home screen, but it has a strange white border and very rounded corners.
The icon is 57x57 pixels and has a black background. With these rounded corners and the white line around it, it looks strange.

I have now a couple of questions and if you could help me with one I would be glad to hear it.

- How can I add a Webapp Icon to the home screen, which looks like the App Icons for the default Blackberry Torch Theme?
I have found http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverables/17965/BlackBerry_6_icons_and_indicators_115202...  but this addresses the App Icons and not the WebApp Icons.

- Is there a chance to add a precomposed WebApp icon to the home screen? Testing with apple-touch-icon-precomposed did not work.

- What is the correct size for a Webapp Icon for BB 9800, Torch?

- Can I avoid this funny white line around the Webapp Icon, when it is added to the Home screen?

Thanks Torsten
