The corner resize zone, where you have the diagonal resize cursor which allows you to left-click and resize vertically and horizontally at the same time, is extremely small in the upper corners, forcing the user to either use the keyboard modifier or to resize vertical and horizontal separately. Play with the cursor around the upper right corner and you'll see what I mean. Maybe it's not a problem of the corner's "size" but a matter of switching between vertical-resize and horizontal-resize while it should just be a 2D-resize in the whole area.

geoffm, if you use the Alt key+ middle click on your mouse, you have a much much bigger area to resize it. Since I use this hotkey to move / resize windows, I totaly love it. But maybe using hot keys is not your cup of tea.

Alt + middle click is okay, but I would prefer a more tolerant behaviour of the default approach as well.

I know I can use hotkeys, and it's what I do. It's just that sometimes I don't have my left hand near the alt key and I try resizing the window using the border. I end up screwing around trying to get the diagonal arrow for a few seconds before giving up and using the hotkey. It's a bit frustrating and it makes the window manager look bad for new users who are used to functionnal resizing corners and probably don't know there's a hotkey.
