Description of problem:
When using the Mist theme, a window's border appears to be only one
unit thick.  This makes it particularly hard to grab to resize etc.

Either I've become less coordinated, or something's changed in
Metacity or GNOME Themes to make it even harder to do this.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Preferences->Theme
2. Select Mist
3. Open a new File Manager window
4. Attempt to position the mouse cursor over the right-hand edge of
the window

Actual Results:  It is difficult to steadily position the mouse cursor
over the right-hand edge.

Expected Results:  There is a slightly larger target to aim for, and
the left-right resize mouse cursor appears.

Additional info:

The left and right window edges seem to be about five units wide in
the Bluecurve theme, about five times wider than the Mist ones.

Thanks for the bug report.  At the moment, the Fedora developers don't
time to work on this particular issue. The best way to make sure your
will get looked on is to report it to the authors of the program. Most 
upstream authors use a bug tracking system like bugzilla, and more people
who know the code will be looking at the bug report there.

I have filed this bug for you at:
