The rounded edges are actually derived GtkMenuItems, so you can still
click in the rounded edge, including the corner, and still get a menu
item, so from a functional point of view the usability is the same.
Whether or not the users think that's a clickable area, I doubt it, but
that's not my area of expertise.
