I have noticed that the reveal does not happen if the cursor is 
'gently' taken to the (left) side, it only works for a fairly vigorous 
'hit'. Even when sensitivity is turned up. There are many times when I 
am simply not feeling like hurling the cursor around the screen, 
although I can guess that if I was a dev I might  a lot more :-)

If a bug is registered  give me a heads up I will contribute
