Table scrollbar thumb move when the user clicks in space between the table & the scrollbar.

    Details

      Description

      Table scrollbar thumb move when the user clicks in space between the table & the scrollbar. This is reproducable from 1.4.2 on wards. This is in GTK look and feel.

      Impace of this problem.
      -----------------------
      I am using SwingSet2 to reproduce this problem. Till jdk 6.0 the table scrollbar is below the table header. I have attached the screen shot on jdk6table.png. But in jdk7.0 the scrollbar is equal to the table header. I have attached the screen shot on jdk7table.png. When the user clicks in between the header & scrollbar, the scrollbar thumb moves. This gives an impression for the user that table is sorting. "Actually the table is not sorted" , but the scrollbar is moving which intend rows of the table moves.

      Expected :
      ---------
      Clicking in space between the table & scrollbar should not move the scrollbar thumb.

      Step to reproduce:
      ------------------
      1) Run SwingSet2.
      2) Select Table demo.
      3) Click on the space between the header & scrollbar as attached in the screen shot jdk7table.png. or jdk6table.png. If you observe that scrollbar thumb moves , then the bug is reproduced.
