If it's only effective on a tty display, then is the scroll bar
reference irrelevant?  AFAIK, there are never scroll bars on a tty
display anyway.

The change which introduced the text about the scroll bars is [1:
8241495da5].  It's old, has no log message, and contains many changes,
so it's unclear why that particular text was added.
