Resizable windows in Ubuntu

By default, Ubuntu ships with window resizers that are very small and difficult to hit exactly with the mouse. This is made worse by the fact the resize cursor jumps to a different location. You can fix this by switching to the High Contrast theme. This adds a visible resizer to some windows. It does make the rest of the UI look terrible, but that's a price I'm willing to pay to be able to resize my terminals.
