Vertical scrollbar overlapping attribute bar

This is hrev32241.

See the attached screenshot of a Tracker window.
The upper part of the vertical scrollbar overlaps the attribute bar. For one thing, it looks a bit off with the dark lower line of the attribute bar being a bit below the lower line of the scrollbutton box.

Also logically, it's not correct as it seems to include the attribute bar in the scrolling area, when it's actually not scrolled together with the file list.

Vertical scrollbar overlapping attribute bar

I'm sorry. I forgot the horizontal scrolling. If the window isn't wide enough to display all attribute columns completely, scrolling horizontally will of course scroll the attribute bar as well. Doing that while the vertical scrollbar stays unmoved would look really weird...

Sorry for the noise... I'm tempted to close the ticket with "junk", but not exactly knowing that category, I go with "invalid". :)

I actually thought about this too, i'd find it more aesthetically pleasing and logical this way. Like you say, it sure would be a bit weird for the horizontal scroll, but maybe it's a lesser evil as one uses vertical scroll far more often.
I guess the situation is a bit paradoxical as it's strange either way, as both scroll bars don't span over the area they scroll. Although scrollbars bigger than the area they scroll are strange, the contrary is less problematic and quite common. I think it deserves a second thought.

Up there could be a scroll-widget like in WonderBrush in the bottom right corner: with it you can pan horizontally and vertically. At least than it wouldn't be a waste of space up there...
