What you're describing is correct. I must have no problems left to fix as I
am using xinerama. Is there no way to make it so the mouse can't enter that
area? Other wise I'll just get used to it.

Thanks guys!

Dead space will happen with Xinerama if the monitors are different
sizes, because the root window (desktop) in X is always a rectangle.
So if I understand you correctly, there is nothing left to fix..
Unless your issue is something other than the dead space existing.

Openbox won't place new windows inside the dead space, it knows about
it (if it does there is a problem). You can still move stuff into it
if you want to, like you can move things off of a monitor.  There's no
reason to stop that.
