I'm just glad I didn't break anything! I think I'll look into whether
I can set up a GNUStep development environment so I can test against it.

I believe the only behaviour of that sort is that the scroll-bars get
disabled when they cover the whole area. On OS X that just means
they're greyed out, but I guess GNUStep removes them completely. It
could be worth changing that section of the code to be Cocoa only, so
in GNUStep they stay visible.
