[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#582648: chromium-browser: Can barely see the main scrollbar due to low contrast

Package: chromium-browser
Version: 5.0.375.38~r46659-2
Severity: normal

The main scrollbar for the chrome window is very low contrast (I can
barely see it, and I have no eyesight difficulties).  Light grey
against slightly darker grey, with 3 small ticks in the centre of the
scrollbar thumb.  I can't usually find where I am in a page based on
the scrollbar unless I spend 10 seconds carefully looking for the
thumb.  Definitely not useful to quickly peer where I am from my
periphery vision.

I'm not using gnome so any theme settings and gconf settings etc that
it may be using are set to their defaults.  The defaults should be
sane enough to make scrollbars visible without needing to run anything
else or install any chrome extensions. (the extensions I've found only
apply to scrollbars within the html content anyway)
