This is exactly the problem I tried to describe. Pressing "i" and "j" is
a good replacement for moving the boundaries with the mouse this in my
case even if I wonder if making the "hover-at-boundary" at minimum 0,5%
of the screen width or 2 pixels wide would be a good idea or if it would
make grabbing the right region harder instead.

Also I have the impression that "i" and "j" set the region start and end
to a point that is slightly different to the one my marker (playhead)
currently is at. Haven't fully investigated this, though, up to now.

Kind regards,
