In Linux X/KDE, and I suppose Ubuntu too, you can use Alt-left-button to drag windows beyond the desktop boundaries. Therefore, if your window is outside the desktop at the bottom and you cannot get to that lower right corner, place the mouse cursor anywhere in the window you wish to move and use the alt-left-button to drag the whole window into the desktop where you can get to that corner. Then you should be able re-size the window as you need.

The pixel sensitivity sounds more like a desktop problem than an LO problem. I don't know what desktop you or Ubuntu uses, but there should be an desktop settings option to adjust that mouse pointer sensitivity to a number of pixels. I just checked my KDE settings for the mouse and it is set to 4 pixels.

Hope this helps.

Similar to gedit (ubuntu), it would be nice if I could point my mouse _near_ the lower right corner to adjust the size of a libre office window, as opposed to placing the tip of the mouse pointer arrow on the pixel where the vertical and horizontal lines meet. Usually I cannot even get to the bottom, as it will ofter be off the screen. This is most obvious when attempting to bring the right side of the window in to the left. The pointer is pixel sensitive. As the source for this is 'open' (as in gedit), I assume that this would not be a big deal.
