If I'm interpreting this correctly (maximized windows, right?) it's on

anyway i haven't found one yet that follows Fitts' laws: when a window
is maximized you can't activate a button on an edge (for example the
close button) moving your mouse pointer to the pixel at the corner of
the display, you instead must backtrack to avoid the theme's border.
The same with a scroll bar of a maximized window.

Metacity had the same problem:

It's not with a maximized window, just one that's right up against the top of the workspace, not sure it's the same thing...

I grabbed most of the Blackbox-like themes and found a few that don't have the wheeling problem. Icarus has the 1px black border as part of the titlebar/handle images and it has the button layout I wanted, so I just modified that for color scheme and button appearance.
