OK, I've narrowed it down to one file: `lisp/version.el'.  That is, if
I unpack emacs 21.1 and replace lisp/version.el and lisp/version.elc
with their counterparts from version 21.0.106, then configure and
make, the problems with the scroll bar do *not* show up.  Pretty
strange, eh?

Any suggestions as what to do now?  Note that my current machine is
going to be changed tomorrow (Friday) afternoon, so if I am to try
something else, it needs to be done fast.
