Card Vertical Scrollbars

LC 4.5.1.  Another twist on this.  If I request a horizontal scrollbar  
as well as a vertical one, the vertical scrollbar arrows both show up  
fine (as do the horizontal scrollbar arrows.  It's only when there is  
a vertical scrollbar and no horizontal one that I see this issue.

I'd like to add that, in my opinion, the scrollbar approach works just  
fine for window resizing whether by script or by the user.  That's in  
the context of my application of course; it may not be appropriate for  
other apps.
