If "very unlikely" is not enough then "might" (as in, "It might happen
that the background color of the active window is very close to the
color of the active border.") isn't enough either, is it? ;)

If it's that important to you then put together a patch? If you're not
much of a programmer then I'm sure somebody could point you in the
right direction.

Have you considered other options, like making the border thicker or,
as somebody else mentioned, putting a small gap in between windows (I
think there's already a patch for that out there somewhere)?
