I don't think this is quite right -- after the window passes the click event to
the scroll bar, the scroll bar does not pass the click event back to the window.
 An example: 

(make-instance 'ccl:window
  :view-subviews (list (make-instance 'ccl:scroll-bar-dialog-item
                         :view-position #@(20 20))))

(trace ccl:view-click-event-handler)

Now, clicking on the scroll bar produces:

|Calling (CCL:VIEW-CLICK-EVENT-HANDLER #<WINDOW "Untitled" #x1AA74F1> 7405595) 

Regardless, Rich's solution for testing the mouse click position being within 16
pixels of the right side of the window should still work...
