Bug#805191: libgtk-3-0: scrollbar fails to appear

Mike Kupfer
Package: libgtk-3-0
Version: 3.18.4-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I upgraded libgtk-3-0 and libgtk-3-common this morning (from 3.18.2-1
to 3.18.4-1).  This changed the scrollbar behavior for the package
list pane in Synaptic.  I verified this in GNOME, Cinnamon, Xfce, and

Old behavior: the scrollbar would appear if I moved the mouse into the
package list pane.  (I don't remember if anywhere in the pane worked,
or only if I moved the mouse to the right-hand side of the pane.)

New behavior: I cannot get the scrollbar to appear with just the
mouse.  I can get it to appear by selecting a package and then
pressing the Down key enought times to force the package list to
scroll.  Once the scrollbar appears, I can use it normally, but after
a few seconds of idle time it disappears again.

This is a serious usability regression.

I see the same behavior with Nautilus, though with other apps (GNOME
Terminal, Wireshark), the scrollbar is always visible.

(Can we just get rid of the dynamicall-appearing scrollbar?  It hides
valuable information when it's not visible--there's no visual clue
about how many more packages there are beyond the ones you can see in
the pane.  Also, I recall getting unexpected behavior where I would
click near the bottom of the scrollbar to get a vertical scroll, but a
horizontal scrollbar would appear and I'd get a horizontal scroll
