That was the default behavior since Emacs 23.2; I guess very few users
really press that key or care about the results.

If you set w32-scroll-lock-modifier to t, does that produce the
behavior you expect?  If so, I prefer to update the doc string to
mention this setting, rather than change back 7-year old behavior.

Thanks.
