Toolkit native scrollbars are the default with Emacs.  They don't annoy
a lot of users apparently.  Probably also because the geek demographic
of Emacs is different from that of XEmacs.

IMHO, the XEmacs Lucid scroll bars look much better than Emacs native
scrollbars.  I think that may be a factor also.

I was of the opinion that both used the same code (Lucid), so it would
probably just be a matter of the default settings.

Personally, I use

(setq-default scroll-bar-width 15)

I don't think I have any settings that affects this. I attach a screen shot of lucid scroll bars in XEmacs (left) and Emacs (right). The difference is apparent. It could possibly be fixed by some X resource setting, I haven't tried.

Anyway, the Emacs native scroll bar isn't based on Lucid, and looks much worse.
