The panel's border is distinctly weird - I have applet padding set to 0, and
if the panel has a pixmap background the buttons are flush with the screen
edge. If it has a colour background, they are 1 pixel away from the screen
edge (can't be hit by "throwing" the mouse pointer into the corner). I had a
quick look at the panel code and couldn't find a reason for this - is it a
GTK engines thing? It would be nice to get rid of the border in all cases.
