Default Synergy issues on Ubuntu 11.10/ Gnome Shell - mouse not going left

Got an annoying one here, using Synergy on 3 machines:
Synergy Server: Ubuntu 11.10, using Gnome shell, Synergy 1.3.6
Client 1: laptop, dual boot Win7 Enterprise & Ubuntu 11.10 Gnome Shell.
Synergy 1.3.6 on both.

Client 2: Mac OSX 10.5, Synergy 1.3.8

The synergy.conf file has them setup in a circle, in that order:

Mac - Laptop - Server - (and circle back to the Mac)

What annoying/odd, is that on the Server, if I push the mouse to the
left edge (headed for the laptop), it hits a "wall". Unless I have a
window butted up against that edge. And once I have a window like that,
I can only cross over from that window; not from a visible desktop area
below that.

Seems like the Gnome Shell taskbar there interrupts the Synergy there...

synergy-foss.org is aware of this:
and someone has built Synergy 1.3.8 into a PPA:
"...Updated by Bernard Duggan 17 days ago
If any Ubuntu 11.10 users need it, I've created a PPA with 1.3.8 and
Xinya's patch (thanks Xinya!). You can grab it with

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:bubuntu-guarana/synergy

Please be aware that I'm not an experienced packager, and I've just
gotten this to the point where it "seems to work for me" ..."

Which fixes the issue of the mouse hitting the left-side "wall"; but it
crashes every few minutes.

Anyone else run into this?
