Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2005-11-13 10:01:30 UTC
Well, the mouse support in the upstream mc is a bit broken since it works only
for the left panel actually. The ability to scroll the scrollbar with mouse
wasn't intended for the first introductionary release of the panel scrollbars as
they were planned as an indicator widget. The reason that you're scrolling down
when clicking on the bottom arrow in the scrollbar is caused by the fact that
the arrow sign is on the bottom of the left panel and you sroll down when you
click anywhere in bottom area of the panel. Note that the same works if you
click somewhere on the top of the panel.

The control of the srollbar with mouse matches an intuitive behaviour of it as
scrollbars are considered not to only fullfil an indication role, so
reclasifying this bug as a RFE.

OK, whatever.

Thanks for the tip with scrolling by clicking anywhere in the areas above and
below the panels.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Well I actually don't care about this RFE anymore, the explanation in comment 1
is fair enough.

Closing as WONTFIX if you don't mind. (and fixing the summary)
