The property inspector is misleading in this regard. If you check the 
style property of the scrollbar (in the message box, or a script), it 
will come up as "scrollbar"; there is no "littleArrows" setting for 
the style property.

(The little-arrows appearance is just what happens to a scrollbar 
when it is made short enough. Try creating a regular scrollbar, 
making it very small, then checking its property inspector.)
