This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2003-02-19 on porky.devel.redhat.com
configured using `configure  --host=i386-redhat-linux --build=i386-redhat-linux 
--target=i386-redhat-linux-gnu --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

using "emacs -q" in X11 graphics mode, when you highlight some text,
scroll far down the file using the scroll bar, and try to position the
cursor with the left mouse button, the cursor ends up in a different
place.  This often causes emacs to center on a differnt part of the text
document making it very difficult to know where you are and where you 
really wanted the cursor to go.

this seems to only happen when the scrollbar is used. using
Ctrl-v does not produce this bug.
