Since a recent upgrade, I have the following annoying behaviour in some applications like Synaptics, the Gnome Character Map, or the Applications Menu editor: 

When I click in the scroll bar of the application window below (or above) the slider, instead of being moved down (or up) by one screen, the slider is taken to the position where I clicked the cursor, which can move me to very far position from where I started.

This does not happen with all apps; is it a problem with XFCE, or does it lie with those apps that are so affected ?

Hi Ron,

Sounds for me like an update to gtk3 and that the toolkit handles this different compared to gtk2. Xfce can't do anything about this.
