With Rev 2.2 on WindowsXP both the horizontal and vertical scrollbars 
show with a scrollbarwidth of 10 (set from the message box); however the 
thumbs disappear.

With the same Rev engine in the Metacard IDE the thumbs indeed show for 
scrollbarwidths smaller than 16.

Seems to be the Rev IDE that causes problems here?

I am using the "Windows XP Home" edition.
