Hi :)
Sorry, good point.  You can 
Alt    click&drag
too.  It just didn't occur to me it might be useful.  Nice one Girvin! :)

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.
