   Yes, but in this case the documentation is staring the user straight
   in the face.  

    Basic face for non-GTK scroll bar colors under X.

This does not go far enough.  You should not be able to enter a
customization buffer when customization does not work.

When a person tried to customize the colors of troughs and sliders
when running GTK in Windows (i.e., `under X' even if he or she is not
using X resoures other than those used to operate the window),
a message like this

    Scroll Bar face cannot be customized under GTK using customize-face

should be displayed at the earliest possible moment, right after
you type

    M-x customize-face RET scroll-bar RET

The message should appear *instead of* a customization buffer, since you
cannot customize.

When customization fails, you should not ever receive a customization
buffer.  To be dropped into one that does not work is a bug.
