I've seen a similar variation of that puzzle. If I remember correctly it's because the slopes are slightly different in angle or length and they don't precisely match.

Thank you. Trick solved. The slopes don't match. There's a gap between them which equals one cube.

Ha that is cool but i don't think it is a glitch in the matrix. Has to be something to do with cutting multiple squares in half thus giving us more squares to work with.

This is because it is a slight optical illusion. Basically the angles of the cut pieces do not exactly match up and leaves a slight gap in the center. This accounts for the extra square.
For a visual explanation of this see this link Just move the pieces with your mouse to the other 5x13 grid and will show you where the gap is.

They don't actually fit together, they're adjusted and the extra adjustment makes up another square. Look at the java applet posted above, adjust the number of squares to 3 and it becomes very obvious because the adjustment needed it a lot larger.
