Radio buttons - wrong size and appearance in exported Interactive PDF

Using the existing button library, I have added some interactive radio buttons to a form I am designing. The intent is to export to an Interactive PDF. In InDesign, the button size/appearance seems fine, but in the exported PDF, they look way too large and strange. What sort of thing might be causing this?

 

Here's a comparison of what I see in ID, vs. what's in the PDF:

I don't think you can resize the radio buttons that way - you'd have to make that change in Acrobat afterwards. I'm not 100% sure on this one - but it seems like radio buttons have to be a certain size in Acrobat. I could be wrong, it's a long time since I used them.

Couple of questions. I may be missing something here, but what is the small gray circle to the lower right side of your radio buttons in InDesign?  There should be a circle inside the radio buttons, I think (Assuming Show Frame Edges in on). Also, it appears you are using a table? If so, are the buttons anchored in each cell or just sitting on top? I am unable to reproduce this problem. Can you post a snippet from the ID file?
