PS: The only problem is that those toolkits have the idiotic idea to enforce that the bottom of the thumb cannot go further than the bottom. And they enforce it by hiding the events corresponding to "user moves the mouse

I can talk with the GTK developers about this.  And also with the
LessTif developers.  Should I do that?

We already had this discussion, and Owen Taylor said (27 Mar 2003):

 * Allowing dragging the scrollbar thumb past the end of the
   trough is something I'm quite hesitant to do:

    - It will look like a bug to the user
    - Some themes may not be able to handle such a case nicely (think
      of a theme where the stepper arrows are round circles in the
      trough instead of being as wide as the trough ... in that
      case the thumb can't simply be truncated by the stepper arrow)
