Hmm, looks like a lot of work to find this.  By the way, I did another
test that may give a clue.  When I configure an unmodified emacs 21.1
like this

./configure              \
  --without-gcc          \
  --with-x-toolkit=motif \
  --without-toolkit-scroll-bars \
  --with-xpm             \
  --with-jpeg            \
  --with-tiff            \
  --with-gif             \
  --with-png             \

so with the option `--without-toolkit-scroll-bars' added, and do a
make, the scroll bar does function properly. 

Anyway, I will try to convince the computer department here to keep an
O2 (that exhibits the scroll bar problems) running, so we can do some
additional tests.
