The cygw32 (--with-w32, Cygwin64) build on Windows 7 of emacs-24 shows a
scroll bar which looks as on XP instead as on Win7. The same build for
emacs-trunk looks fine.

I wonder if this is a bug or if it should still back-ported to the
emacs-24 branch..

Which bzr revisions (or which update dates) did you use on each branch
for building the binaries?

I have just discovered that today trunk (maybe after the merge from
emacs-24 branch) has the same problem!

For example, this trunk


has the scroll bar which looks ok on Win7 while the trunk


has already the wrong scroll bar (XP-like) on Win7.

Notice I am speaking of a cygw32 build, which is a Cygwin build with the
look of Windows.

Instead the Windows native binaries I find here


(today trunk 20140408) have the correct scroll bar.

I would say that the emacs-24 bug has been back - oops - forwarded to
the trunk...

I don't have time to check this right now, but it's a pretty good bet that this is a result of my recent change to use the (new) default Cygwin manifest instead of the one provided by emacs:

  Don't use manifest on Cygwin.  (Bug#17176)

  * nt/emacs.rc: Don't use manifest on Cygwin.
  * configure.ac (EMACS_MANIFEST, UPDATE_MANIFEST): Leave these
  variables empty on Cygwin.
  * src/Makefile.in (EMACS_MANIFEST): Update comment.

A little googling suggests that the difference might be due to the fact that the emacs manifest mentions Common Controls version 6, but the one provided by Cygwin doesn't.

If my guess is right, then this is a Cygwin/binutils issue rather than an emacs issue.
