Try running just Metacity and see if resizing works. If it does then
it's Compiz. "$ metacity --replace"

The Resize plugin under compiz-config is right at the bottom under the
Window Management section. Make sure it's enabled, and try a different
resizing setting (rectangle, outline, normal, scale).

You could also try ALT-MiddleMouse and dragging to resize. It's
conceivable it's a GTK issue, in which case try a different theme (one
with a border).
