Is this on Yosemite or earlier?

On Yosemite I can put the right margin inside the image (3 pixels) to 
make it part of the clickable area.

On Mavericks and earlier it’s more difficult because the layout is 
“button” followed by 3 pixels of spacing and then “right edge 
image of tab”, where the latter visually has about 5 pixels of “tab 
area”, but making that the hotspot for the overflow button would 
require hardcoding in something which is otherwise general purpose code 
(to support multiple styles based on OS).
