The 8x scrollbar width seems to me like the biggest problem.  Users
can easily go beyond that without intending it, especially on high DPI

Checking that you're within 8x of the opposite side seems like a
better approach, since that would clearly be intentional.  Although
that too could be problematic for very skinny windows.

Best wishes,
