I have committed the changes now.  Although I gave them some thorough
testing with the Gtk/Lucid/Motif and Windows builds here, they very
likely might break with other window managers or toolkits.  I did some
light tests with GNUstep but am convinced that the NS build in
particular will run into more serious problems.

I'm aware that the changes should have been applied separately.  But as
I explained in another post, doing so would have cost me too much time.

Note that horizontal scrollbars are turned on by default on all builds
that support them.  This is the only way I see to get them at least some
initial coverage.  If you utterly dislike them (or do not use scrollbars
at all) please use the idiom

(when (fboundp 'horizontal-scroll-bar-mode)
  (horizontal-scroll-bar-mode -1))

I intend to disable horizontal scrollbars by default in the next weeks.

I plan to add the corresponding NEWS entries in the next few days.

Thanks for any feedback, martin
