I've tested on 2 machines, one is my Kubuntu Hardy desktop which uses
KDE natively, second one is a plain UbuntuHardy  desktop with Gnome

On both of them I can see a ~2px - 3px thick border around the document
area of most applications - plain text file editors, spreadsheets, etc.
Both KDE and Gnome equivalents (Kword on Kubuntu - Abiword on Gnome,
Kedit - Gedit, etc.).

Interesting exception - Kspread doesn't exhibit this problem, it has no border and the scrollbar can be easily grabbed by moving the pointer to the extreme right, to the edge of the screen.
Gnumeric on the other hand has the border, OOcalc too.

The style settings on Ubuntu are synchronized between KDE and Gnome so
this mechanism (and one particular theme - I'm using Plastik) might be
to blame on Kubuntu.

However, to my knowledge, nobody messed with the theme on the plain
Ubuntu machine, which is a recently installed system shared by my cow
orkers. It still exhibits this problem in GTK apps with the default
Gnome theme (I suppose).
