Just did a check without the config, on an emacs displayed natively in
the X11 server on the debian machine I've been running the emacs on, and
on the natvie X11 server, emacs does not toggle scroll-lock-mode when a
window is selected.

That machine's keyboard has a Scroll_lock key, and that key toggles the
scroll-lock-mode, or... at least it does so until the new config is in

But scroll-lock-mode is something I've never thought about or wanted, so
I don't think I will miss it...:-)
