as you probably know aqua scrollbars have this pattern which keeps position when you drag it up and down. what this means for the round edges of the bar is, that they keep changing its image while you drag, in order to respect the pattern (there are actually lots of little round-edge images in some system-resource to make this work). as far as I understand, chimera doesn't really implement the scollbars natively, but emulates their look with some aqua-emulation (which will probably need an update anyway once Jaguar is released -- 24. August --, as Apple changed the visual appearance of many GUI-elements... if chimera takes the images for the aqua-emu from the system-resources this may not need to be updated). I recognized one day, that the bottom round-edge of the vertical scrollbar doesn't always respect the pattern correctly, which leads to a visual artifact where you actually are able to see where the bottom round-edge image is seperated from the bar. Sometimes this isn't visible as this seems to depend on how large the bar actually is, but if you resize a page vertically and drag the vertical scrollbar around a little, you'll quickly find a situation where the pattern isn't respected correctly and you see a visual artifact while dragging. This artifact never appears on real native aqua-scrollbars. It looks like the bottom end of the main-bar area and the beginning of the bottom round-edge area don't fit together in terms of the pattern and so a "too bright" line gets visible which visually seperates the bottom round-edge area from the rest of the bar. This is probably too trivial to mention and ppl will wonder why someone takes the time to write this into a bug-report, but it is a bug in the aqua-emu nonetheless... ;-) This effect doesn't seem to be visible on horizontal scrollbars, at least I couldn't see it in a quick test. I'll throw a little demonstration of the problem together in Photoshop. Keep up the great work you guys do...

I'm sorry, Philip, but I don't completely understand what the bug is. Could you summarize?
This happens in all Aqua-using apps. I'll attach two screenshots; one from Chimera, and one from TextEdit. Both show quirks near the bottom of the scroll elevator.
(You'll need to enlarge those screenshots to see the problem.)
Nice try, but we actually do use native scroll bars. Marking invalid :-)
Greg, you're right (sorry for replying late)... Surprisingly (for me at least, as I never noticed this before -- I spend a lot of time in my browser of choice) this really seems to happen in other Aqua-apps as well... Sorry for the confusion, I was so sure it is Chimera-only and just wanted to help track this bug down... 8-/ Thanks for your hint...
