XmCR_DRAG is jump in Motif speak.

No we don't, please look at the current code.  portion and whole are 
initialized to 0 and
only set for JUMP.

Because that callback does not distinguish between the different scroll modes.

Iff is clearly wrong.  Look  at xg_scroll_callback and do tell me how portion 
and whole gets a value other than zero when scroll is not GTK_SCROLL_JUMP.
Ditto for xm_scroll_callback when cs->reason is not XmCR_DRAG.

This looks ugly when WHOLE changes.  The Gtk+ scroll bar does not redraw nicely.
