> Yet another user is saying that the scroll bar works all wrong.

Some users expect the Motif-like behavior offered by Gtk/Lesstif/KDE/...
and Xaw3d-with-scroll-bar-arrows, while others expect the old non-toolkit
behavior which is also the standard behavior of Xaw
and Xaw3d-without-scrollbar-arrows.

Fiddling with the Xaw3d toolkit's mouse-bindings via Xresources is not
something I have the time and/or inclination to do right now, so I
can't really help.  Also this would only provide the customizability
for Xaw3d but not for Lesstif.  I don't know how to do such a customization
for Lesstif.
