Re: Scrollbars on GTK.

    The main issue, AIUI, is that the gtk scrollbar mechansim _assumes_ that
    "end of buffer" is always at the bottom of the window (except when
    that's impossible, such as a document smaller than the window), but
    emacs allows the end-of-buffer point to be positioned anywhere in the
    window.  So to allow users full flexibility in positioning, emacs
    defines a sort of "overshoot" area past the end of the document.

This issue comes up over and over.  I wonder if there is a place
we can put an explanation so that people will see it instead of
asking about the issue again.
