gnome-panel and Fitt's law?

No such issue here with up to date Hardy. The one spot which doesn't
obey Fitt's law for me is the notification area, which seems to be
creating a small border around the icons it holds.
All other applets, with a few rare exceptions, are clickable from the
very edge of the screen. The one exceptions I have noticed myself is
Seahorse's Encrypt / Sign clipboard applet.

My panel is at the top of the screen. Perhaps this changes weirdly
depending on orientation?


I am using Metacity, with compositing turned on. Possibly a Compiz
