FWIW, the minibuffer scrollbar usually isn't shown in the Gtk+ port as there isn't room for it. I have never missed it.

What is the point of having a vertical scroll bar in the minibuffer?
How often is the minibuffer high enough to need it?

I see it as something useless, aesthetically awful, a waste of
horizontal space in the minibuffer.

Thus, I'd like to suggest either to remove it, or, if someone sees a
reason to keep it, control its visibility with its own
variable/command (different from `scroll-bar-mode').
