I'm sorry, yes I should have been more specific, I measured it now at
138 pixels, which is a tenth of a window for me at home or a twentieth
at work.

Unless they were to make the distance be the width of the window
(minus a pixel in case it is full screen), I can no longer use the
pointer to point things out while dragging the scroll bar or scroll
and move directly to a link.  This is a regression of expected UI
behavior on Linux making it inconsistent with every other program I'm
aware of.  Will Debian carry simple patches that help make the user
experience more cohesive?
