Graphics, User Interfaces For as long as I can remember, I've been having issues with scrolling in Windows and its applications. When scrolling via dragging the scroll blob, it seemed as if Windows had the annoying habit of randomly resetting your scroll blob to its starting position, which irritated me to no end. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally know when this behaviour occurs - now I just need to know: why?!

The correct scrollbar placement IMO is grouped, but on *both ends*. That way whichever place you like to place your mouse you can get both directions. The loss of vertical space is rarely important... and you could put in simple rules saying "if smaller than foo, hide one set of arrows."

Thus solving the problem in a way everyone will love, except UI wonks.
