Sorry, I meant the scrollbar handle in that bug report when writing

When dragging the handle and moving it down (or up, but without changing
direction during the operation) the contents of the window does not
always move up. While dragging the handle the contents sometimes moves
down again and then up again.

Yes, that's how I read Kim's mail. It's ok, once you know what's going on.

I clicked the scrollbar handle on the right of Emacs' frame. The handle
changes its position (it moves up) when clicking on it. If you like, I
can try to make a short video sequence that could possibly compensate
for my bad English.
