2 edge pixel rows on each side of panel are not clickable

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-panel

If you have a panel on top of your screen the top 2 rows of pixels do not respond to mouse clicks. E.g. you cannot open the applications menu by clicking on the top 2 rows of pixels above it. This is very annoying when you quickly want to open one of the menu's on top of the screen.

Also on the bottom at the window list, when you move the mouse pointer down as far as possible, visually the mouse pointer is in the window button but it is not clickable.

One exception is the 4 pixels in each corner of the screen which do work as expected.

Bug 30829 might be the same problem, but I am not sure.

Thank you for your bug. Do you use compiz? Does it happen without it?

I only notice this with a single line at the top and bottom of the screen

This is a compiz issue as it doesnt happen with compiz turned off

forgot to mention this is along the whole width of the screen

after further stabbing around, I've noticed its 1 pixel round the whole screen (all edges of the screen)
You can't click to focus a window by clicking say point (0,100) even if this is where the centre of a window

Yes, it indeed seems to be compiz related, when I disable it, it does not occur.
