Why is there a invisible 1-pixel border around the entire edge of the screen in Unity? The pointer doesn't reach the edge of the screen. This means Compiz button-binding shortcuts that involve clicking on an edge or a corner of the screen don't work. I used to like the shortcut I had for the scale plug-in as a click in the bottom-right corner.

I would like to know the reason for this mildly annoying border. I would also like to know how to fix this issue with Compiz, either by removing the border or increasing the radius from the edge of the screen with which Compiz accepts clicks. The edge-binding shortcuts work because I assume Compiz measures mouse movement within a greater radius from the edge of the screen for edge binding.
