Please help my dock and apps play nicely together

On my Mac (Tiger), I prefer to have the dock at the bottom, hidden. But all my applications insist on opening new documents and windows so that the new window touches the bottom of the screen. As a result, it often happens that when I go to resize the window by grabbing the bottom right corner, I invoke the dock instead. Usually, a second try will be successful, but this is annoying as heck.
Is there a global setting that will tell my applications to stay out of that last quarter inch of my screen? Or some other solution to this?
