The thumb on the scale widget is much too small on Windows Vista. IIRC this isn't a problem on Windows XP.
I can confirm this bug, I noticed it when using an extension with a slider bar. Specifically a mockup for the solution to Bug 389628. I'd imagine that there are several bugs that depend on this bug being fixed.
Neil, do we need to use native-theming to get the correct thumb size (can we, even)?

The thumb size is a always a fixed size (30x15 or 15x30) set in css and the native theme code is just calling ::DrawEdge with that size.
Ignore that last comment. I was looking at the wrong thing. The scale thumb is already native themed, but it seems that GetThemePartSize on Vista returns an incorrect value. We may just want to hardcode some values here, or just disable the native theming and use the default css values.
