   I believe that there may be some confusion here.  If you make stuff

   invisible), between the position at the top of the screen and the one

   nothing happens to the thumb.  (Tested in Emacs 20.7, native

I am puzzled.  Using 20.7, when I visit NEWS by typing `C-h n'
(view-emacs-news) and then type `C-c C-t' (hide-body), the thumb grows

When I then type `C-c C-a' (show-all), the thumb grows smaller.

I interpret this to mean that the thumb shows the portion of visible
text shown in the window to all the visible text in the buffer.

In any event, I like this policy.

If I remember rightly I configured 20.7 this way:

        ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

(I built Emacs 20.7 a long time ago; perhaps I also added
`--with-type1 --with-sound=yes' to the configuration.)
