Where'd my scroll bars go?

Dear All,

I just reinstalled Slack. I'm not sure what's different, but for some reason Epiphany has no scroll bars if I'm not root. Any thoughts?

That's really odd.
Anyway, are the scroll bars gone on any other apps with
the same gui libraries?
Also, run it from an xterm and give me the output.

are scrollbars are controlled by window manager decorations (i.e. do they appear without a window manager running) or they are controlled by the programs themselves?

Which WM are you using?
