The attached patch fixes the problem for me as the plist now looks like
this:

(symbol-plist 'vertical-scroll-bar)
=> (choice (nil t left right) event-symbol-element-mask (vertical-scroll-bar 0) 
event-symbol-elements (vertical-scroll-bar) modifier-cache ((0 . 
vertical-scroll-bar)) variable-documentation 374812)

Cheers
