There is no metacity bug here, no one file any. ;-) Metacity 100%
definitely does not put any pixels to the right of a window when the
theme so specifies. When you click on the far right of a window with a
fitts-law-compliant theme, the click goes to the app. If the app or
toolkit doesn't scroll, it's an app or toolkit bug.
