Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Which buttons are displayed are up to the theme you use, unless you modify them yourself. There are normally 4 possible buttons that can be displayed, I believe. If there's some kind of extra space there I'd say it's either a glitch or an intentional part of the theme.
I think it is possible we do not have a clear picture of what the problem is. Do you mean that the clickable, "x" button on the right hand corner of the window is not large enough (so that it does not extend all the way to the far right corner of the screen), and you would like to make it bigger? Can you maybe take a screen shot so we can see?

Then a screen shot could help us see if this is part of your theme, some other setting, or something else. Please also tell us what version of Ubuntu/Gnome this is. I have some old live cds lying around that I could use to figure it out, but I don't know what you are using.
Unless somebody else can already say for sure it's theme related. It's been a long time since I have used Gnome for anything.
You might want to try just changing your theme to see.
