Start emacs with `emacs -q'. Look at the scrollbars to the left (main
window and mode line). There is a small gap between the left window
edge and the scrollbar and between the scrollbar and the left
fringe. The gaps display the background color. There should be
no such gaps.

In order to make resizing consistent, Emacs keeps the scroll bar at the same width as the character width.

Can't see how the scrollbar with can be a problem. Ok, Emacs let's the user resize the window (contents of the window) in character units, but a (GNOME) window can have *any* size.

But the GTK scroll bars have a fixed width, which only sometimes are the same width as the Emacs character width. Therefore there are gaps.

This is not specific to Emacs compiled with GTK support. The standard X Windows scrollbar has the same problem.
