So the scrollbar shrinks to a small rectangle while being dragged
(and so if you grab the _end_, you end up dragging it from a distance)?

This seems rather drastic considering that _most_ of the time there
really isn't any problem, but you're making the common case ugly to
cover the rare glitches that do happen.

 But they also destroy the environment, to an extent so drastic that
 they kill all social life' (from _A Pattern Language_)
