the menu 'listing all window operations' is not the main-menu.


The main-menu is triggered by button3 on the desktop (button3 = middle mousebutton), the window-ops menu is triggered by left-click on menu button in a windows-titlebar.


Though main-menu can be triggered to be accessible anywhere, if you bind 'popup-root-menu to something in global-keymap, or 'popup-window-menu for window-ops menu.

EA (EdgeActions) are disabled by default. See SawfishConfig => Edge Actions,

it should not be active if you haven't done so... though it still might be that the nearest 1px (or was it 2px?) might not be accessible...


Never really tested this and with EdgeActions enabled I never suffered from non-working scrollbars (I mostly have maximized windows, so scrollbar is always on the right edge).
