An obvious alternative, assuming no satisfactory solution to your
problem can be found, is:

./configure --without-toolkit-scroll-bars

The native scrollbar does not have the problem.

   I am talking about the size of the thumb. Not only does it not come
   back when dragging (which, while it may be intentional, looks 
   very much like a bug), it also doesn't come back after you release,
   until you move the scrollbar again.

It also "comes back" if you type in any key or click the mouse.
