Post Scriptum: I think that in the electronic version of the manual,
there should be something like


        M-x customize-variable RET scroll-step RET

    in order to set scroll-step to 1

and the line with the customize-variable should be _clickable_ and
start customization.  gnus provides such buttons when it encounters
such a line in a Usenet posting or Email; it is a pity that our own
internal documentation does not work in that manner: it would
certainly make the manual more compelling.
