One thing that has been bugging me a bit with notifications is how close the pop-up is
to the screen corners/edges. It's so close that it obscures various things that live very
close to screen edges, such as windows' titlebars and the text input field in chat apps.
The latter case is really annoying in particular because if you have multiple chat apps
running, notifications from the app that's in the background will obscure what you're
typing in the text input field of the foreground chat app.
This patch fixes these types of issues by doing the following:
- Adjusting the popup positioning algorithm make popups that are in a corner equidistant from both adjacent screen edges, rather than only one
- Doubling the defualt distance from the nearest corner/edge
The combination of these changes allows pop-ups to no longer obscure window titlebars
and chat windows' input fields.
