Fitt's Law. From what I can tell, the rounded corners don't create problems
in this regard; you can still click in the very corner and get the menu and
so on.

By the way, I just noticed that the GNOME tasklist, with the "Follow panel
size" option on, doesn't go all the way down. In the manner of the extreme
breakage in the Windows tasklist, the two bottom-most pixels are unclickable.
This should probably be fixed.
