If you are willing to wait for mouseUp to see the snap then maybe 
this would help:

local tNearestInteger

on scrollbarDrag tPos
   set the startvalue of me to 1
   set the endvalue of me to 5
   put round(tPos) into tNearestInteger
   put tNearestInteger into field 1
end scrollbarDrag

on mouseUP
   set the thumbposition of me to tNearestInteger
end mouseUP
