   Wht do you mean by "the first time"?  If I drag down the thumb to the

   I do not understand what the desired behaviour is supposed to be,
   versus how it really works with the native scroll bar.

There is some "precision work" required, no doubt about that.  You
have to drag slowly and carefully, you can not just "yank".  Actually,
that is a problem that is very difficult (or impossible) to get
around.  (It is one of the things Owen objected to.)  Dragging with
mouse-2 is not very handy for precision work.  (Actually, it is
completely impossible for large buffers.)
