Yep, I hit that problem pretty often as well, esp on my laptop which has
a smaller screen (and therefore I maximise things more often), and has a
crappy trackpoint and touchpad.  It's really annoying. Unfortunately,
it's not quite so simple to push the window borders off the screen, and
it's possible (due to panel placement, etc.) that the edge of the window
isn't even on the edge of the screen anyway.  Windows has this right,
IMHO.  Note also that this depends on the application having the scroll
bar all the way against the edge of the window - if there's any padding
(possibly inserted by the gtk theme and not the application), this
wouldn't work anyway.
