Every now and then my upper left corner of the screen becomes "unclickable".
Imagine you draw a horizontal line and a vertical line at the middle of the screen and then basically the upper left quarter that is created by these lines becomes non-reacting to clicks.
If an application window is "below" that quarter (or on that quarter) of the screen, i can not click any buttons or other UI elements.
At the same time i can click UI elements which are outside of this quarter.
If i move the Application to the right or down into any other part of the screen i can click UI elements that i could not click before.
It seems to me as if some other invisible Window becomes stuck at that place and it happens to be quite accurately 1/4 of the screen.
So far i only know that a restart fixes this issue. (maybe logout is enough).
I also tried to type
which somehow restarts my WM but that also does not help
Anyone has a clue what i could do to get rid of this or at least find the root cause why this keeps happening every few weeks?
