Description of problem:
using Mozilla to browse the web I like to have the window maximized.  When I
start Mozilla it starts as maximized the way I like it but it does not maximize
correctly.  On the top right corner to the right of the close button there is a
space of 10 pixcils inbetween the edge of the screen and the edge of the right
most part of the title bar.  This also includes the right edge of the window as
well it may not be 10 pixcils it is 5 pixcils wide.  This space is the same
color of the controls.  This just happens to look very ugly and the only way to
return the maximize to the way it is supposed to be you have to unmaximize then
remaximize.  I do have a screenshot available please email me

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start Mozilla for the first time it is in a small window
2.maximize Mozilla then close Mozilla
3.start Mozilla again this time it starts maximized with this space on the right
4.from this moment on every time that Mozilla starts it does this
and problably other programs that start maximized

Actual Results:  it just looks very unprofessional and retarded again I have a
screenshot available just email me at daniel.nelson@comcast.net (my main email)

Expected Results:  what should be happing is that the window should be maximized
all the way to the edge without 10 pixcils of space on the title bar.

Additional info:

I don't know if anybody else sees this but it happens every time for me.  Like I
said screenshot is available just email me asking for it, please use my main
email addy daniel.nelson@comcast.net

I update metacity to metacity-2.6.2-1.src.rpm from rawhide
and rebuild in fedora test2, 
it's only solve in gtk2 apps, or except gtk1 apps

the problem is still exist in gtk1 apps, 
I have been trying with mozilla firebird 0.6 d/w from mozilla.org
that compiled using gtk1,

step to reproduce is exactly same
windows will have some space in top right corner of the window
