Description of problem:
When moving my cursor over the top left or top right corner of a window my
cursor does not change into a resize icon at all. To make matters worse moving
the cursor up the window to the top of the window sometimes changes the cursor
but the area of effect is WAY to touchy, I also noticed that moving the mouse
down from the root window to the top line of a window does not change the cursor
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Move cursor to top left corner of a window
2.Move cursor to top right corner of a window
3.Move cursor from root window to the top of a window
4.move cursor from within a window to the top line
Actual Results: 1. Isn't resizeable.
2. Isn't resizeable
3. Isn't resizeable
4. Resizeable but area of effect is too low.
Expected Results: To be able to resize easily from these positions.
Which metacity version? recent ones expanded the top edge a bit.
Our default theme doesn't really leave a corner for top left/right though (other
than on the bottom of the titlebar).
You can alt-middleclick also.
After updating to up2date current the top edge is much better. Why no top
because the buttons in Bluecurve go all the way into the corner.
The top edge is larger now, and I think the lack of corners on Bluecurve is
