The CLIM 1 architecture does not provide a clean mechanism for defining
scrollbars and the current implementation is not particularly pleasant.
A window's scrollbars are themselves CLIM windows - children of the window
and various methods ensure that they get resized and repositioned when the
window is resized.

What kind of behavior did you want?

CLIM 2.0 uses the scrollbars supplied by the underlying toolkit.
