This is a documented feature of the grip, I believe you can configure wmx to
not have it at all.  It's mentioned as slowing the Xterm redraw if you don't
have a wide left scrollbar.  I also get it with windows 3d OpenGL apps, and
simply dragging the window a few pixels off the left of the screen fixes it,

Oh, I assumed it was on the Config.h, I'll bother checking now.. No it's not,
actually the README says to try a different terminal emulator :)

I normally use 3d apps in fullscreen which sort out any problems like this,
but could you let us know which lines you found so I have the option.

I've seen your following email, and that doesn't tally with what I've
experienced.  I find it IS related to the resize grip, but it doesn't bother
me it's eating in to the actual X window so it's not surprising that would
happen, I wouldn't consider this a fault.
