Bug Description

I'm a big fan of the iSticky theme, but I discovered some flaws while using it in CoverGloobus. Basically, the width parameter is set too high and as a result the theme takes more space than needed. This doesn't just look bad when the "Show Background" option is enabled in CoverGloobus, but this also causes CoverGloobus to reset the position of the window because the (invisible) background of iSticky falls outside the screen when it's placed close to the side of your screen (which is a logical place to put it).

Annoyed by this, I decided to change the parameters myself. See the attached screenshot for a comparison. A patch is also attached. Actually I haven't received DJDP's permission to modify and redistribute the theme yet (even though I tried to contact him through DeviantArt), so we might wanna wait for his approval first before we do anything with it.
