Bug Description

xubuntu 13.04
chromium-browser 30.0.1599.114-0ubuntu0.13.04.2 from raring-security

When the window is maximized there is an area above the tabs and if I click there I can see the menu entries (see the attached screenshot).

This bug is extremely irritating as it destroys the Fitts' Law effect for changing tabs - by adding the extra 1px of menu at the top of the screen you can now overshoot the tab and get a menu instead.

I have confirmed that this bug is not present in upstream Chromium, see bug report here:

The same happens here when using classic themes. Lubuntu Trusty 14.04 amd64.

Not sure if this is the same bug. F11 fullscreen mode does not work either.

Same problem in Kubuntu 14.04.

Actually, on Lubuntu 14.04 this is fixed for me, as I was still looking at 13.10 for some reason.

This bug was introduced in Xubuntu 12.04 during the last update for me. And it is _really_ annoying. :/
