IMHO if the author of the patch didn't bother to even write a single comment
to the bug his patch introduced, this patch have to be reverted. Of course
if you have a better fix send a patch in. My patch makes Steam usable again.

Having extra scrollbars are lesser of the problem then not having them at all!

Install Steam and see for yourself if you didn't understand a simple comment
"no scrollbars".

I didn't wrote the patch and don't know what all it fixes. I know what it
broke - Steam. Which is one of the most used applications in Wine.
