Unfortunately "the target" only returns a reference to the field; 
scrollbars attached to a field are not addressible as distinct objects.

I just added a request for a param to scrollBarDrag to identify the 
scrollbar being moved:

In the meantime I've used this workaround:

on scrollBarDrag
   if the clickV > the bottom of me - 16 then
     -- do horizontal scrollbar stuff:

     -- do vertical scrollbar stuff:

   end if
end scrollBarDrag
