I see the same problem both with my daily updated Sid desktop and on
Jessie Stable.  All just as previously described by the original bug
reporter.  Grab the scroll bar.  Move the scroll bar.  Move the
pointer a short ways off the scroll bar, say inward toward the center
of the window, this causes the window to jump back to the original

Comment #4 in the upstream bug log says this is intentional behavior
in order to jump back and forth between two different regions.

Workaround: Don't use the scrollbar and mouse for scrolling.  Use the
mouse wheel or use touchpad two finger scrolling.  If you only have a
trackpoint then... mouse as precisely as possible.  I also recommend
the Vimium plugin set for j & k keystroke scrolling.
