Scrollbars are not showing up until a window is resized in at least the preferences dialog. When you open up the tree on the left in the preferences dialog so that the items there no longer fits in the widget without scrolling, the scrollbars don't appear. Only when you resize the dialog do they appear and even then, not every time. Sometimes you have to close and re-open an item to get the scrollbars to appear. Possibly related to this and possibly not is that in Mail & News, mail headers in the mail view area (the large area where the mail body appears) are not always displayed. Only after a resize of the window does the headers appear. The reason I mention this even though it sounds like a quite different bug is that the same remedy (resizing) causes the hidden feature to appear so I imagine it's possible that they are caused by the same bug.
