No, I don't think this is related. My scrollbars and arrows do appear
correctly.

I have noticed that, and have also noticed that the horizontal scroll bar
never appears in source view, even if the source extends past the right edge
of the window. Since there's no horizontal scroll bar, and scrolling doesn't
follow the mouse selection, it's tricky to edit a long line of code. I've
been doing it by clicking at the rightmost visible piece of code and then
pressing the right arrow key, which then moves the window display to the
right.

Cheers,
