Sorry about that :-) missed the "vertical" part.....

and sure enough I have:

      (if (fboundp 'scroll-bar-mode)
          (scroll-bar-mode -1))

so it works for me - If I look at the definition of a mouse down event
on a vertical split bar I get:  

        vertical-line down-mouse-1 runs the command mouse-drag-vertical-line:
        Change the width of a window by dragging on the vertical line.
