Bug Description

[Impact]

A flickering when drawing.

[Test case]

When resizing a window in quantal, the resize border flickers slightly between light and dark.

[Regression potential]

Low, just increases the damage region to draw properly.

---

It appears perhaps that the damage rectangle resize is using is slightly too small and does not include the border. So often the border will get overdrawn.
