Changing from char to lines wouldn't solve the problem.  You need to change
from char to pixels to get something that works.  Of course you
can also change other things such as the rule for the position/size
of the thumb.


PS: Of course the difference between counting lines-vs-pixels is less than
    for chars-vs-pixels, so it would help in many cases.
