scrolling groups and graphic border

Nice to see the list alive again! But it seems my last message was lost in the process, 
so I repeat it.

I have a scrolling group of fields (say group A) which scroll also a second group (B). 
Both groups are created by script, and have the same width. But group A (with the 
scrollbar) can scroll left 16 pixels further away than group B. It seems that in the 
"opinion" of the scrollbar, the width of group A is larger than in its properties...

As a quick (and very dirty) solution, I added (still in the script) a 16 pixel wide 
rectangle to group B. Now my scroll is perfectly synchronized, but I met another 
problem: impossible to get rid of the border of the rectangle. I tried to set the 
borderWidth of the templateRectangle to 0, to set the bordercolor to the 
backgroundcolor, to hide the rectangle (in which case, the scrolling problem 
reappeared). I didn't find anything about that in Bugzilla (but I'm not very skilled with 
its interface).

Any idea welcome
