I'm seeing the thumb size change effect you describe while reading your
message with Gnus on Windows. Yes, it is odd, but much better than GTK,
because it gives a more accurate idea of where the point is relative to
the buffer length (thumb position) and of the buffer number of lines
(thumb size). It is far from exact, but at least it indicates that the
last line is visible.
